Snow scheduled to revisit the area tonight

By Danza Johnson/NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – Northeast Mississippians may see the all-too-familiar sight of snow when they wake up Friday morning.
According to the National Weather Service In Memphis, there is a 50 percent chance of snowfall for the area in the late evening. But don’t get your snow boots out this time, and don’t plan on building any more snowmen.
Meteorologist Marlene Mickelson said only about half an inch is expected to hit the area and it shouldn’t stay on the ground long. What accumulates should melt by Saturday.
Temperatures are expected to reach 39 on Friday and 43 degrees on Saturday. Today is expected to be rainy and windy and with lows tonight in the low 20s, giving snow the opportunity to stick.
If snow falls tonight, it will be the third time the area has seen snowfall since late December. Last week, snowfall reached record numbers for the area with more than eight inches falling in some places, and most of it stayed around for the week.
