— Snow was expected to spread Thursday from Mississippi across northern Georgia and up to the Washington, D.C. area, the National Weather Service said. The winter blitz follows days of heavy rain across much of the Southeast.

Already, snow was falling in central Mississippi early Thursday with 2 to 4 inches expected by midmorning, the weather service said. Meteorologist Alan Campbell in Jackson said the heaviest snow activity in Mississippi was along the Interstate 55 corridor.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant was allowing state offices to remain closed until 10 a.m. Many schools systems in central Mississippi had delayed opening until 9 a.m. or 9:30 a.m. after the snow was expected to end. The last time central Mississippi got at least 2 inches of snow was in February of 2010.

Some schools in Alabama also opened late because of concerns over slick roads.

Winter storm warnings were in effect for parts of Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee.
