Increasing Chance of Snow in Alabama This Weekend Plus Wet Weather
This week we will continue to see seasonal-like temperatures with dry conditions until Friday. Now, the big question is, could we see some snow this weekend?
The National Weather Service in Birmingham advises that “depending on the track of this system, rain may change to snow for parts of central Alabama with some accumulation potential. It remains too soon to resolve the crucial details.”
The Outlook from the National Weather Service in Birmingham
Rain changing to snow with some accumulation expected
Accumulation is possible generally near and north of Interstate 20 while rain may mix with snow further to the south
Saturday overnight through Sunday afternoon
I highly recommend checking back often over the next few days as weather information could change. Forecasting winter weather in the south is a challenge. As always, we will bring you all the necessary updates you need to be able to prepare.
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “there is a chance we will see snow showers over about the northern third of the state in the colder air, but typically in this scenario we don't have any serious travel impact. While some light accumulation is possible in grassy areas, temperatures should be a little above freezing and roads will remain wet through the afternoon.”
