Check out how far south icy precipitation & snow get in the South......not only early Tuesday, but with storm developing on the Gulf Coast Wednesday.
Accumulating snow, sleet & freezing rain are all on the table for Louisiana, Arkansas to Tennessee Wednesday to Thursday morning.
Here, there is increasing consensus of a slight jog to the northwest in the storm track initially & a much earlier arrival. Data suggests sleet & freezing rain overspreading much of the area by early Thursday morning.
Even if there is icy mix for a bit at the start, it should transition to all snow with time.
As new low pressure forms on the East Coast & takes away the energy from this system, the snow should wind down pretty quickly Thursday evening, it appears.
This scenario is a Miller Type-B winter storm system, but it is usually clippers that do this sort of thing. If you are going to get a Gulf coastal low, it will usually ride the East Coast & may re-develop into a big Nor'Easter. To take a bit of an Inside Runner track like this into our area, then transfer the energy to develop East Coast Nor'Easter is not as common.
Nonetheless, accumulation of some icy mix & snow will occur here, it is just a question of how much & who will get the most accumulation.
Watch the storm system develop in the northern Gulf/Gulf Coast area, then move into our area, only to be "stolen" by the Nor'Easter blowing up along the East Coast.
This will tend to cut icy mix & snowfall totals from what they could be here.
