SUMMARY: Areas of light rain and snow is gradually tapering off this Friday morning. Accumulations will be minor and mainly confined to grassy and elevated surfaces. Ground temperatures are very warm and they should keep roads mainly wet. The exception could be some bridges so be careful going into far northern MS and west TN. The sunshine will make a return on Friday. Some isolated light rain showers on Friday night as a weak disturbance is pushing through. A fairly decent weekend is ahead for us with warmer temperatures and sunshine before more showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast next week.
