SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Here's an update from WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams:

Chances are increasing for snow, ice, and rain to fall from the clouds this evening across South Mississippi.

While there is increasing confidence in wintry mix actually happening this evening in South MS, the question remains will it be enough to actually cause a major travel hazard.

It appears it will not be enough to cause highly significant impacts to area roads this evening, according to a Tuesday afternoon forecast.

But, it is still a good idea to use caution on bridges and overpasses tonight into Wednesday.

A hard freeze tonight could cause any remaining liquid on roads to freeze up. And, remember, bridges and overpasses freeze faster than other roads.

But, it will be so windy tonight into Wednesday that that could actually help the roads to dry somewhat before they become icy.
