NATCHEZ — Miss-Lou residents may get another opportunity to perfect their snowman-building skills when another arctic front dips into the region Tuesday bringing with it chances of snow.

“Snow may accumulate on bridges and other elevated highways,” Wolverton said.

Heavier snow is expected in the Delta, including Greenwood and Greenville. In those areas, accumulation totals could reach 1 to 2 inches.

Wolverton said a cold front will move through the area Tuesday bringing bitter cold temperatures turning rain into snow as it drops below freezing. Snow is expected to start early Tuesday morning and continue into the afternoon.

The weather service has issued a weather advisory for the cold temperatures that could drop below 20 degrees with wind chills in the single digits.

“After the cold front moves through, temperatures will drop into the teens for at least a couple of nights,” Wolverton said.
