A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect for Jackson and DeKalb counties in Alabama and for Lincoln, Moore and Franklin counties in Tennessee from 6am – 6pm Tuesday. While many communities in the WAFF viewing area will see scattered snow showers over the next 36 hours the areas under the advisory are the most likely to see up to ½ inch of snowfall accumulation.
Scattered snow showers will come and go overnight tonight through Tuesday afternoon. Most accumulations will be on the light side and on grassy areas where the snow picks up. A strong northwest wind at 15-25 mph will blow a lot of the snow off the road but some patches of ice cannot be ruled out. Bridges and overpasses will be the first areas to have problems. Temperatures will likely not fall below freezing until 10pm tonight.
Morning lows will be in the middle and upper 20s with afternoon highs around 34 degrees. Sunshine will return Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Another shot of cold air will move in this weekend and we are watching the possibility of a wintry mix Sunday night into Monday.
Have a great night.
