January 28, 2014 Ice/Sleet/Snow Storm

Tornado
South Mississippi encountered an Ice/Sleet/Snow Storm on January 28, 2014. We had about an inch of ice and sleet during the day before the snow got here. It was cold enough at ground level for it to snow, but the upper layers had not gotten below freezing, thus we had ice and sleet for most of the day. About 4:00 p.m. the snow started at my house and we had about an inch or more of snow on top of the ice and sleet. The winter precipitation stopped around six that evening and the temperature got down to 15 degrees that night. The next day temperatures were still below freezing and the roads were sheets of ice and extremely dangerous. All the schools and businesses were closed because of the icy roads on Wednesday. Wednesday night it got down to 11 degrees, but most of the ice had evaporated from the roads late on Wednesday from the Sun coming out. But on Thursday morning the businesses started to open, but not the schools, it was very cold and there were still patches of ice, especially in the shade. I went up Graves Road towards Highway 84 and encountered a large patch of icy roads that was on a hill that was going down and around a curve at the same time. It was a patch about 100 yards long and I was able to coast across it in my 4-wheel drive truck without any problems. In a few minutes four vehicles slid off the road and wrecked at this same spot. But it is forecast for 48 degrees on Thursday with bright Sunshine. So the ice should melt!
