How Much Snow Did You Get?

With a band of heavy snow moving across central Mississippi Sunday morning, accumulations varied widely– even in areas just a few miles apart.  The largest amounts reported to the National Weather Service in Jackson were both in Rankin County– 9 inches in Leesburg north of Pelahatchie and 8.5 inches in Sandhill, a few miles to the west.  Near the Leake-Scott county line, 5.4 inches fell near Ludlow.  In Neshoba County 3.5 inches fell in Philadelphia. In Leake County at Singleton, just south of the Attala County line, 2.5 inches accumulated.  And in Kosciusko 2 inch amounts were common.  The National Weather Service says, as of Monday afternoon, some snow patches in central Mississippi were still visible from space on satellite imagery.
