Published 12:01 am Thursday, January 3, 2013

NATCHEZ — For many, the coming weekend may best be spent snuggled up on the couch before the first full week after the holidays begins.

The events calendar is certainly light, aside from a few private Mardi Gras events, and it’s going to be a cold one.

The predicted high for Friday is 49 degrees, and by Sunday night the low is 26.
