HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - As of 9 p.m. Wednesday, the entire Pine Belt was under a winter storm watch issued by the National Weather Service.
The watch extends from Thursday evening until Friday afternoon. This means there is potential for significant snow accumulation which may impact travel.
The area will likely see light rain, light sleet and light snow during the late afternoon Thursday. During the late evening hours snow will pick up in intensity. It is possible the area may have heavy snow overnight, resulting in 2-6 inches of snow in parts of the WDAM viewing area.
Friday afternoon, all the significant snowfall should be over. Temps may briefly rise above freezing during the day which will allow for a little melting, but hazardous road conditions may be an issue Friday night as well.
Most area schools will wait until Thursday evening to announce closings.
Thursday/Friday on-air coverage WDAM will be monitoring the storm overnight. Assuming the snow comes arrives, we will offer live weather updates on air at approximately the top of every hour, starting just after 9 p.m.
The main goal will be to quickly show you a radar and fill you in on the latest road conditions in the Pine Belt. These cut-ins will happen through out the night, so feel free to stay up late with us.
Thursday/Friday Internet coverage We will begin coverage with our Live Web Blog and Live Web Cam Thursday afternoon, offering constant updates as the snow begins to fall.
Friday morning, we will take questions from the blog and answer them live on the morning show. The blog and Web cam will continue into the afternoon.
Cancellations When we receive information on school or business cancellations in the Pine Belt we will pass them on. Public and private K-12 schools that elect to close will scroll on our screen, be listed on www.wdam.com , and will be announced in newscasts.
