JACKSON—After consulting with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and other emergency officials, Gov. Phil Bryant has delayed opening of state offices in areas affected by winter weather, including the Jackson Capitol Complex, until noon today.
State agency directors have discretion to bring in essential personnel and should notify those employees who need to report to work prior to 12 p.m.
The National Weather Service says freezing rain, sleet and snow are expected to continue throughout the morning, from the I-20 corridor northward making travel dangerous.
The Mississippi Department of Transportation is reporting ice on roads and bridges in most counties in north and central parts of the state.
Gov. Bryant and emergency officials will continue to monitor the weather and will issue additional guidance as necessary.
