Weather in the middle of January for Starkville can be somewhat hard to predict.
It has been a rainy winter season so far and the temperatures has been up and down.
One thing is for sure, there's always a Frostbite.
The 27th Frostbite Half Marathon will take place today and race officials expect the event to be run no matter the conditions.
"Rain, shine, sleet or snow and that's why we call it the Frostbite," said Eddie Myles of the Wellness Connection. "The weather for me being that it is the Frostbite, I want it to be a little bit colder and think we have a forecast of 63 degrees."

The Starkville Yellowjackets didn't want there to be any question by the end of the night which soccer team was the best in Class 5A, Region 3, District 4.
With Thursday's 5-0 win over the Neshoba Central Rockets, the Jackets clinched first place in the division and will host a first-round playoff match Tuesday night.
"It's a long time coming," Starkville boys coach Brian Bennett said. "We had tied for the division the last two years with TUpelo, but our motto has been leave no doubt this season, put everyone away, finish No. 1 and not let it get down to the tiebreaker. It feels good."
