December 18 Weather History
On this day in 1996, an arctic airmass over South Mississippi resulted in three consecutive nights with subfreezing minimum temperatures. Temperatures lowered into the mid teens over the southwest section of the state and near 20 degrees along the Gulf Coast. An area of low pressure produced unusual snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches along the Mississippi coast. Wet, slippery road surfaces contributed to a series of minor automobile accidents.
