Near record breaking low temperatures reminded Miss-Lou residents Monday that Christmas is right around the corner.

An arctic front moved into the Miss-Lou Monday night, preceded by rain. Wind speeds between 15 and 30 mph are expected to make the wind chill from 0 to negative 10 degrees today, according to Jackson Weather Service forecaster Dave Biggar.

&uot;Tuesday will be mostly sunny, but bitterly cold,&uot; said Biggar. &uot;Tuesday’s high isn’t expected to reach freezing.&uot;

Wind speeds are expected to slow down to between 10 and 15 mph.

High temperatures today will be in the upper 20s to lower 30s, said Biggar. &uot;Tuesday night lows will be near 15, which is close to the record low.&uot;

According to Biggar, Miss-Lou residents have a chance to see snow flurries between Thursday and Saturday, but probably nothing that will accumulate. Although this weather may be too cold for people, area duck hunter Chuck Fields said the weather was, &uot;bad for people, good for ducks.&uot;

&uot;The colder weather up North pushes more ducks down here,&uot; said Fields. &uot;The colder the better for duck hunting.&uot;

Fields said it won’t get too cold to keep the duck hunters from hunting. ‘The nastier the weather, the better the hunting.&uot;

The ducks are out in the rain and the cold, said Fields, and so are the avid duck hunters.
