The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, Jackson Weather Examiner along with the National Weather Service are urging everyone to prepare today for what will likely be a major winter storm, featuring significant accumulations snow, sleet and freezing rain on Sunday into early Monday across much of Mississippi.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for nearly the entire state, including 71 out of 82 counties.
With the potential of up to 8 inches or more of snow across northern sections of the state with significant ice accumulations possible across central and southern sections Sunday into Monday, loss of electricity, heat, and telephone service could occur and with lack of equipment to clear roads of snow and falling tree debris or power lines, you could become trapped in your home for a few days. If you have to travel by car during the winter storm, make sure that your vehicle has the appropriate tires and that they are in good condition. Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio or other local news channels for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS). Whether it's preparedness for floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, or fires, the key to survival in disasters is planning. Use our preparedness section to stay informed, make a plan, and most importantly—remain safe in an emergency.


Unlike the Northern United States, the Deep South is unaccustomed to dealing with major winter storms and because of this, urgency in preparing is a must.
Again, everyone is urged to prepare for the worst and to stay updated on the latest concerning this developing major winter storm on Sunday into early on Monday across the region. Watch for signs of frostbite: loss of feeling and white or pale appearance in extremities such as fingers, toes, ear lobes, and the tip of the nose. Joe Biden has announced he will not be running for president in 2016In a short speech delivered on Wednesday, Biden lays all rumors to rest.
Watch for signs of hypothermia: uncontrollable shivering, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, slurred speech, drowsiness, and apparent exhaustion. The National Weather Service issued blizzard warnings for all of Eastern and Southeastern Massachusetts, with strong north-northeast winds expected to gust up to 70 miles per hour.
It is important for you to drive with the best possible visibility during the winter storm.


While the danger from winter weather varies across the country, nearly all Americans, regardless of where they live, are likely to face some type of severe winter weather at some point in their lives. Winter storms can range from a moderate snow over a few hours to a blizzard with blinding, wind-driven snow that lasts for several days. One of the primary concerns is the winter weather's ability to knock out heat, power and communications services to your home or office, sometimes for days at a time.
Many winter storms are accompanied by dangerously low temperatures and sometimes by strong winds, icing, sleet and freezing rain.
The National Weather Service refers to winter storms as the "Deceptive Killers" because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm.
