NATCHEZ — We must have been good for Christmas because Santa brought back warm weather when he visited town Saturday night. Tuesday was warm, sunny and a major contrast to last Friday’s frigid temperatures.

National Weather Service in Jackson forecasts there is a potential for frost before 9 a.m. but it will be a mostly sunny day with a high of 64 and a low of 50 Wednesday. There is a south wind blowing at 5 to 10 mph. Gusts could get up to 20 mph. Wednesday night could see increasing cloud cover which will limit surface heat loss experienced on clear nights.

There are three more days left in 2022. Wednesday is national card playing day, national call a friend day and national chocolate friend day.
