NATCHEZ — Drizzling rain quickly turned to snow flurries early Friday morning across the Natchez area.

A cold front that is moving through the area was forecast to bring increasingly colder temperatures throughout the day, but the surprise flakes caused area residents to stop and take note Friday morning.

Shortly after 8 a.m., the snow was falling on already wet surfaces and quickly melting. No significant accumulation is expected.
