Area in winter weather advisory, light snow possible

Area in winter weather advisory, light snow possible

A winter weather advisory was issued from 5 a.m. on Friday to 7 a.m. on Saturday.

This includes areas from Louisiana to parts of Alabama, Georgia and the Carolinas.

PLACEMENT: The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for areas south of a line from Cedar Bluff to Oneonta to Tuscaloosa to Livingston, and north of a line from Jackson to Selma to Prattville to Dadeville and on to Lafayette.

On Thursday, forecasters said the best chance for the most snow was along the Interstate 85 corridor from Alabama through Atlanta and into SC.

Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard and Vernon parishes are not included in the current Winter Weather Advisory.

A cool front that has made its way to the Southeast Coast has brought with it the chance of snow for the Midlands. Some higher elevations could reach as high as 3 inches of snow. The northern edge of the rain area is likely to change over to snow, primarily north and west of I-85, where minor accumulations of less than an inch could fall. Be cautious even when temperatures are shown to be near 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

"You will always have fluctuation with cold fronts but you can expect more days with temperature above normal throughout the upcoming months", said Rackley.

"On Saturday, we may be brushed with a little bit of light snow", FOX 61 Meteorologist Dan Amarante said on the morning news Thursday. Reduced visibility could result from the falling snow so use caution on the roads late tonight and tomorrow morning. Temperatures will dip to around 30 degrees. Brining roads before snowfall prevent snow and ice from bonding to paved surfaces, enabling easy removal.

REMEMBER: With nearly every winter weather event in Alabama, there is a surprise or two.

Forecasters said uncertainty still remains about the amount of snow that will fall. Heading into Friday night, drier air should work in behind another cold front crossing the area and we are forecasting a clearing sky and cold temperatures for both Saturday and Sunday.
