How much snow will Memphis see on Monday?
MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Winter weather has arrived in Memphis and the South Central, and many areas have already seen several inches of snow.
In addition to the snow, temperatures will be dangerously cold for the first part of the week. Highs will be in the teens and 20s with low temperatures in the single digits Monday night and Tuesday night.
For this reason, any snow that falls will remain on the ground for several days.
How much snow will Memphis get?
Many parts of the South Central have already seen 2-3 inches of snow as of 3 a.m. Monday, and another 2-4 inches of snow is likely along and south of I-40 through this morning. This will likely add up to a total snowfall accumulation of 4-6 inches in Memphis, and possibly a bit higher.
North of Memphis, snow amounts will be a little less with an inch or two possible toward Covington and Dyersburg. Higher amounts are possible south of I-40 in northern Mississippi, where many locations will see 4-6″. In this area, some neighborhoods may see 8″ or more.
Areas like Clarksdale, Batesville and Oxford saw some sleet mix, which could reduce the total amount of snow accumulation.
When will the snow end?
The snow will begin to taper off Monday afternoon and disappear completely by Monday evening.
Roads are covered in snow in much of the Mid-South. Although this snow is dry and powdery and not as slippery as ice, there are still a lot of slick spots and crashes have already been reported. Road conditions are expected to remain difficult through the day and into Tuesday.
