Winter Weather Advisory For Central & Southwest Alabama

 

Winter Weather Advisory to our south and west.

 

This is not a Tennessee Valley event. But if you have travel plans to the south, pay attention!

Here is a look at the advisory from the National Weather Service in Birmingham:

 

…ACCUMULATING LIGHT SNOWFALL EXPECTED BEGINNING EARLY FRIDAY
MORNING…

.Cold air moving in from the northwest will result in rain mixing
with and changing to snow beginning late Thursday night and early
Friday morning. Temperatures are expected to remain just above
freezing while the snow falls, which will prevent significant
accumulations, but some light accumulations will be possible
primarily on grassy and elevated surfaces.
