Snow in the South. It’s a rare occasion but when it happens it’s a big deal. And it may happen later tonight!
The latst model data suggest that anywhere from a coating to 4″ of snow may fall late tonight and into Thursday morning. It looks like the window of opportunity here will be open from about 3 a.m. and last until noon or so. Grassy areas and elevated surfaces will be the favored locations for snowfall accumulations. Widespread travel issues are not expected due to the warm & wet roadways but slush could develop on bridges if snowfall rates are high enough.
The system will move east into Alabama by early afternoon and that will end the threat of precipitation in our area. Skies should gradually clear from west to east and our highs may actually climb back into the mid 40s if we can get the storm out of here fast enough.
