JACKSON—After consulting with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and other emergency officials and in the interest of public safety, Gov. Phil Bryant has directed state offices affected by winter weather to remain closed today.
So government can continue to function, state agency directors should exercise discretion in having essential personnel report to work.
The National Weather Service is forecasting the potential for freezing precipitation and snow in portions of Mississippi, including the potential for such conditions in the Jackson metro area. Gov. Bryant and emergency officials will continue to monitor the weather and will issue further guidance and updates as necessary.
