It's Winter, So Get Ready For More Winter Weather

Winter Storm Pax is headed our way this evening.  Here is the Weather Channel's discussion, which includes this comforting quote: "Winter Storm Pax will bring a long swath of ice and snow across the South through midweek, and the ice may accumulate enough in some areas to knock out power for thousands of people and litter roads with fallen tree limbs and downed wires. Travel will become difficult, if not impossible, in the hardest-hit areas."

Rankin County is not in the Winter Storm Alert range distributed by the National Weather Service; however, Hinds, Madison and Leake Counties are, so we are right on the edge.  Expect a lot of rain, freezing or near freezing conditions, and moderate winds.  

Holmes Community College in Ridgeland already shut down for tomorrow.  Rankin County School District is monitoring the weather.
