Winter Weather expected tonight

The active weather pattern continues for Alabama as rain will begin to mix with snow then transition to all snow overnight.

Most locations saw their high temperature this morning as a cold front was moving across the area. A secondary cold front is forecast to bring much colder air and a chance for snow to the region later tonight.

All areas within the coverage area will most likely see some snow flakes. However, accumulations will be for areas along a north of I-59/20. With soil temperatures being so warm, accumulations will be light to none, unless snowfall rates can overcome the warm ground temperatures. Models have trended toward the higher snowfall rates, which has lead to a winter weather advisory and winter storm warning for portions of North and Central AL. Trace amounts to 1 inch are possible for must locations, with up to 2 inches possible for the higher elevations. 2-3 inches are possible in the winter storm warning.

Icy spots on roadways will also be possible area wide tonight as temperatures fall to or below freezing.
