Wind advisory in effect, snow flurries possible

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Snow showers could fall over the Mid-South on Monday night.

According to WMC Action News 5 Meteorologist Andrew Kozak, light flurries and snow showers could develop Monday afternoon into Monday evening.

While Memphis will not see much wintry precipitation, areas past Jackson, Tennessee, on I-40 and down towards Selmer and Corinth could see a dusting of snow. Otherwise, areas around the Mid-South will see little to no accumulation.

However, the National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for Arkansas counties and counties along the Mississippi River including Shelby County. The advisory lasts until 6 p.m., meaning winds could gust as high as 40 mph until that time.

The high winds could kick up some of the falling flurries, making it look like more snow is falling.
