As a result of the potential for winter weather conditions starting tonight, including a forecast of up to five inches of snow, the Natchez Trace Parkway has issued a travelers advisory for the sections of the Parkway in Mississippi.

Forecasted conditions for the next 24 to 48 hours include the possibility of ice, snow, rain and high winds. Freezing temperatures may cause wet roads and bridges to ice over.  Motorists are urged not to travel the Natchez Trace Parkway during adverse weather conditions.  The entire Natchez Trace Parkway in Mississippi may be affected by these conditions. The Parkway advises all visitors to exercise caution and to take alternate routes when possible.

Although the motor road remains open at this time, the Natchez Trace Parkway may experience temporary closures due to trees felled by high winds. 

Further advisories may be posted.  Current weather information is available through your local radio station.  For current Parkway road information call (662)680-4027.  In the event of a life threatening emergency on the Natchez Trace Parkway call Park Dispatch at 1-800-300-PARK(7275) or 911.
