...MAJOR WINTER STORM BROUGHT SIGNIFICANT ICE AND SNOW ACCUMULATIONS 
TO MUCH OF THE MID SOUTH JANUARY 28-30 2010...

THE MID SOUTH HAD A FAVORABLE SETUP FOR WINTRY WEATHER DURING THIS TIME
FRAME. A COLD FRONT MOVED THROUGH THE AREA ON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 27...
ALLOWING COLD CANADIAN AIR TO MOVE INTO THE AREA. MEANWHILE...A POWERFUL
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE SOUTHWEST U.S. MOVED EAST INTO TEXAS...THEN
MOVED INTO THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY...BRINGING ABUNDANT MOISTURE TO
THE AREA.

PRECIPITATION BEGAN OVER NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND MISSOURI BOOTHEEL AS MAINLY
FREEZING RAIN DURING THE LATE EVENING HOURS OF THURSDAY JANUARY 28. THIS
PRECIPITATION SPREAD EAST DURING THE MORNING HOURS ON FRIDAY JANUARY 29
AND BECAME HEAVIER...PRODUCING A WINTRY MIX OF FREEZING RAIN...SLEET...AND
SNOW OVER MUCH OF THE AREA...EXCEPT AREAS SOUTH OF A CHARLESTON MISSISSIPPI
TO FULTON MISSISSIPPI LINE WHERE TEMPERATURES WERE WARM ENOUGH TO SUPPORT
RAIN.

AS THE AIR COOLED...PRECIPITATION SWITCHED OVER TO MAINLY SNOW OVER
NORTHEAST ARKANSAS...MISSOURI BOOTHEEL...AND MOST OF WEST TENNESSEE BY
MIDDAY FRIDAY JANUARY 29. EVEN A BRIEF SWITCH OVER TO SNOW AND SLEET
OCCURRED BY LATE MORNING NEAR THE TENNESSEE AND MISSISSIPPI STATE LINE...
INCLUDING MEMPHIS...BOLIVAR AND SAVANNAH TENNESSEE...AND CORINTH MISSISSIPPI.

DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS ON FRIDAY JANUARY 29...HEAVY SNOW

A FORREST CITY ARKANSAS TO MEMPHIS TO SAVANNAH TENNESSEE LINE. MUCH OF NORTH
MISSISSIPPI EXPERIENCED A SWITCH OVER TO RAIN AS SURFACE TEMPERATURES ROSE
ABOVE 32 DEGREES.

BY THE EARLY MORNING HOURS ON SATURDAY JANUARY 30...MOST OF THE HEAVY
PRECIPITATION ENDED OVER THE MIDSOUTH. LIGHT SNOW AND FREEZING DRIZZLE
LINGERED ACROSS THE AREA. TEMPERATURES FELL MAINLY INTO THE 20S...
ALLOWING ANY PRECIPITATION TO FREEZE...MAKING ROADWAYS TREACHEROUS.

TOTAL STORM SNOW AMOUNTS RANGED FROM NO SNOW SOUTH OF A CLARKSDALE TO
TUPELO MISSISSIPPI LINE...UP TO 10 INCHES ACROSS FAR NORTHEAST ARKANSAS...
THE MISSOURI BOOTHEEL...AND NORTHWEST TENNESSEE INCLUDING THE POCAHONTAS...
