SNOW POSSIBLE IN NORTH ALABAMA TUESDAY EVENING; NO SNOW LOCALLY… There will likely be a changeover from rain to snow across the far northern part of Alabama near Florence, Muscle Shoals, Decatur, and Huntsville on Tuesday afternoon into the evening hours. No snow or mixed precipitation is expected anywhere close by south Alabama or northwest Florida. For us, the weather story will be RAIN on Tuesday into Wednesday with much colder air moving in. If you’re looking for snow or a wintry mix, you’re going to have to travel at least to areas north of Birmingham. Temperatures will simply be too warm for our local area to have any snow or wintry precipitation.

GREATEST ACCUMULATION POTENTIAL IN ALABAMA NEAR FLORENCE… The National Weather Service in Huntsville continues to suggest that the greatest chance of accumulating snow will probably happen in Lauderdale, Colbert, Franklin, Lawrence, or Limestone counties in northwest Alabama. This includes areas like Florence, Muscle Shoals, Russellville, Moulton, Athens, and Ardmore. These are communities in the far northern tier of the state near the Alabama-Tennessee state line. Most spots will have a light dusting of snow (<0.25” or less) but some spots may pick up upwards of 1” of snow before the precipitation moves out to the east.

MAJOR TRAVEL IMPACTS NOT EXPECTED… If you’re traveling to north Alabama, particularly to areas north of U.S. Highway 278, be aware of the potential for rain, sleet, and snow on Tuesday afternoon extending to early Wednesday morning across northeast Alabama. While the travel impacts should be pretty limited, there could be some slick spots on area roadways across north Alabama.

COLD RAIN FOR LOCAL AREA LATE TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY… Temperatures will be quite warm again on Tuesday across south Alabama and northwest Florida ahead of the advancing cold front. High temperatures will again be in the 70s. Once the cold front passes through your respective location, however, there will probably be a quick 10-20 degree drop in the temperature. Rain will become increasingly likely throughout the day on Tuesday and linger into Wednesday. Again, unfortunately for snow lovers locally, no snow or mixed precipitation is expected anywhere near the southern half of Alabama or in northwest Florida.
