JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A winter storm warning remains in effect until noon on Monday.

Snow is moving in from the west. It will overspread the area overnight. Accumulations will range from a dusting to two inches north of Highway 84 and into the Jackson metro area.

North and west of the Jackson metro area up to 4 inches of snowfall are expected.

Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings are in effect. Lows tonight will be at or just above freezing.

There will be periods of snow, sleet, and rain alternating across the area Monday.

The afternoon looks much better as temperatures will be well above freezing and most snow will have melted. Temperatures will warm up further on Tuesday.

Again, snow will be moving in tonight and Monday morning. It will remain all snow north and west of the Jackson metro area.

In the Jackson metro area and points further south to Highway 84, it will be a mixture of rain, snow, and sleet at times and switch back and forth. South of Highway 84 will be mainly rain. There will be some flakes and sleet pellets mixed in.

Temperatures will drop below freezing Monday night with slick spots and warm well into the 40s Tuesday allowing anything and everything is frozen still on the ground to melt.

Be prepared for dangerous and slick driving conditions during the morning commute.
