Yep, you read the title right "Winter Storm" about to hit the MS Gulf Coast, I have attached a latest precipitation type and amount graphic for this storm. Right now it looks like we will see both accumulating freezing rain along with sleet and snow for the area.
Be advised this is going to be a lot like Friday, and possibly worst, in regards to heavier ice accumulations, which can lead to power outages and very dangerous driving conditions, along with that we are looking for sleet and snow on the back side of this storm to add to the surface coverage around T-3inches possible.
These conditions will make driving nearly impossible over bridges and overpasses along with untreated roadways.
"Winter Storm Watch in effect from 6AM TUE- 6AM WED". for accumulating ice/snow.
