The National Weather Service continues with a Winter Weather Advisory for all of North Alabama and Lincoln, Moore, and Franklin Co. in Tennessee. Moisture will move in from the south after midnight tonight. A winter storm warning has been issued for the Birmingham area.
This could begin to fall as sleet but will quickly change to snow. It is possible the light snow will begin around 3am and continue off and on through the late morning hours on Tuesday. If we are going to have problems on area roads this will likely begin before the morning commute on Tuesday. Temperatures will be in the upper 20s overnight tonight and only make it into the middle 30s Tuesday afternoon. Another storm system will develop over the Gulf of Mexico and track ENE beginning late Wednesday afternoon. This storm system could create more problems with the potential for heavier snow Wednesday evening into Thursday morning. Stay alert to changing weather conditions.
Here is a break down for a few areas for the overnight snowfall potential across North Alabama between 3am and Noon on Tuesday. This is strickly model data but it gives you a good idea at what we are looking at in many areas. It still remains possible that some areas will not see any significant accumulation tonight or with the Wednesday storm.
Please stay tuned for more information on this winter weather. There are always changes so please keep checking back.
