A winter weather advisory for up to 1” of snow is in effect for southern middle TN and Jackson/DeKalb Counties in northeastern AL.
Scattered rain showers will move through the Valley this evening. Temperatures will be in the lower 40s dropping into the upper 30s. Sleet and light snow will mix with the rain across southern and middle TN, but in north AL we’re looking at mostly rain through 10p.
Overnight, that mix should push southward with light snow across middle TN. Due to warm ground temps and the actual air temp being above freezing, any accumulation should be minimal.
The best odds of seeing 0.5-1” of snow would be across middle TN and in the higher elevations of northeastern AL. For the HSV Metro area and the Shoals, we’re only looking at a dusting on grassy/elevated surfaces if that. Any rain/snow will be shifting out of the Valley by 3-6 a.m. and skies will clear over the course of Sunday morning.
Lows should dip below freezing in TN, so a few roads may be slick early. As the sun comes back out Sunday, temperatures will warm into the lower 50s melting any snow.
Our next weather maker brings more clouds to the Valley Monday with scattered rain developing through the day. Highs will top out around 50°, but colder conditions are expected later in the week.
Tuesday will be cloudy and breezy…a few sprinkles or flurries are possible, but nothing significant is expected. A hard killing freeze is still in the forecast Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with lows in the mid 20s.
Skies will be mostly sunny Wednesday, but we’re staying chilly with highs limited to the mid 40s. You can expect another cold night into Thursday morning, but we’ll start warming up for the end of the work week. Highs will be closer to 60° Fri/Sat, but that warmer weather comes with a chance for rain.
