Late afternoon snow update - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Late afternoon snow update

4:30 PM Wednesday Radar 4:30 PM Wednesday Radar
MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

THIS EVENING: Snow is slowly ending in Arkansas from west to east and will do the same over the couple of hours in North Mississippi and southwest TN. Looks like three to six inches with locally higher amounts will be the final totals from Clarksdale to Corinth. Some areas along the TN/MS border are picking up dusting to an inch. Overall, our forecast really panned out with City of Memphis barely getting anything while the southeast side of town toward Collierville and points east saw some snow.

ICY ROADS IN SNOW-COVERED AREAS: All of this will move out this evening with temperatures falling into the 20s. There will definitely be travel issues overnight and in the morning in snow covered areas, so allow extra time Thursday if you have to go out. Temperatures will go above freezing Thursday, mainly in the mid- to upper 30s, so there will be some melting. There is also a shot of flurries or brief snow showers behind this system during the day, but it shouldn't amount to much. It would be mainly across west TN and extreme north MS.

THE GOOD NEWS: A warm-up is coming with highs in the 50s this weekend and into early next week. Some areas may even reach the 60s! There will also be quite a bit of rain between Sunday and Wednesday, so keep the poncho and umbrella handy.
