snow job

Like a movie star’s cameo, snow made a brief appearance Sunday in Northeast Mississippi. Most of the region was dusted with about an inch of snow, with higher elevations reaching two inches, said meteorologist Marlene Mickelson with the National Weather Service in Memphis. The snow fell most in the early morning hours of Sunday, but by about noon, much of it had melted under the morning sunshine.
And the sunshine is expected to stay around.
Mickelson said the forecast calls for sunshine through Tuesday, with temperatures moderating. Monday’s high should reach into the low 40s, with lows in the 20s. Tuesday will see a high in the low 50s, with the low dipping just below freezing.
Temperatures will climb into the 60s beginning Wednesday.
Mickelson said the gusty winds should taper off Sunday night and remain calm throughout the week.
The temperatures will climb as southern winds begin to blow into the region, she said.
