JACKSON, Mississippi — The National Weather Service is warning of a prolonged period of sub-freezing temperatures in Mississippi as an arctic cold front moves into the state.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Eric Carpenter tells The Clarion-Ledger ( that as the arctic air mass moves in, the lows should be in the teens on Wednesday night, with wind chill readings below 10 degrees.

Central Mississippi and the Jackson Metro will likely bottom out in the teens. Farther north in the state near the Tennessee border could be as cold as single digits.

Much of Thursday will be spent below freezing with a high in the mid-30s. Chilly air in the 40s will stick around through the weekend with clouds and a few showers. Temperatures should be back in the 50s by Monday.
