MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - If you are a snow fan, you have probably been a little disappointed this winter. Unfortunately, for the snow fans, I don't see any major snow storms in our near future (the next seven to 10 days). However, we do have at least one small shot at some light snow or wintry mix along and south of I-40 on Sunday evening. We may have one more shot early in the week, but that is questionable at this time. So, let's talk about Sunday evening/night.
SUNDAY WINTRY MIX 8 PM-2 AM: A weak system will bring just enough moisture into parts of the Mid-South after sunset Sunday. Temperatures will be around or just above freezing.
WHERE: Mainly I-40 to the south from Forrest City, AR to Memphis to Somerville into North Mississippi. Dyersburg to Jonesboro may miss out on this one. Northeast MS around Corinth may not see much out of this either, but it can't be ruled out in that area.
PRECIPITATION TYPE: Looks like a mix of freezing rain/sleet and a little snow over north MS with mainly a quick burst of light snow or flurries closer to I-40.
THE BIG QUESTION…HOW MUCH: The answer is "not much". Our RPM model (see image) is showing around an inch for Holly Springs to Tunica to Memphis and up to two inches from Forrest City toward Little Rock. The counties of Lee, Phillips and St. Francis in AR as well as Desoto and Tunica county in MS have the best shot at the most accumulation. Overall though, I think accumulations will vary from nothing to a dusting to maybe an inch or so. If it stays all snow here in Memphis, we could see a half inch to an inch. If not, we will be lucky to get a dusting.
Any way you look at it, it's not going to be a major snow event. But keep in mind, even a half inch of snow can cause travel issues. The rest of the week just looks frigid, so winter is here to stay for a while.
