Some snowflakes still look to fall Friday night into Saturday. It also still looks like this will not be a significant event. Here's the set up as we head into the weekend.
The jet stream, indicated by the clear tube with the arrows, takes a big dip across the eastern half of the country, carving out a deep trough of low pressure in the upper atmosphere. The atmosphere will be plenty cold enough to support snow. Moisture however remains lacking. Some light snow is still expected to develop and track through primarily Friday night into Saturday morning. Some additional snow showers may hang around into the afternoon.
How much snow?
Well WAFF 48 Pinpoint Predictor is being pretty consistent with little to no accumulation. Here is the forecasted snowfall ending at 5pm Saturday:
Most areas won't see anything. A few spots could get a dusting of around 1/10", particularly in southern Tennessee and perhaps in the higher terrain areas in NE Alabama. It will be pretty to look at when it falls and not likely to cause any travel concerns. And if you were hoping to build a snowman or even 1 snowball....you're probably out of luck this time.
So in summary here's what we're looking at....
Check back for updates, but it's unlikely that the forecast will change. We're also keeping an eye on maybe another shot at some flakes Tuesday night. We'll get through Saturday before we start talking too much about that though ;)
