At this hour we’re continuing to monitor the big upper level disturbance to our west. We received a report of a few snowflakes mixing with the rain over west Tuscaloosa County. I’m sure more of these reports will filter in throughout the day and increase overnight. For most locations we are still dealing with a cold rain event. We expect the greatest chance of some snow to be overnight and into the morning hours tomorrow. If you scroll through some previous posts you will see the accumulation totals projected by VIPIR. This model has been rather consistent with painting around a half inch of snow along the I-20 corridor, with higher totals to the northwest. The greatest chance of accumulation in our area will be over Marion, northern Fayette, West Cullman, and Winston Counties.
As the snow falls it will start to melt and any accumulating snow would mainly be on rooftops and grassy areas. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory that will be effective through the early morning hours tomorrow. We still do not expect any major icy travel but I'd plan on taking it extra easy anyway due to those wet roads.
Today we’re heading to Pinson to speak to students at Pinson Elementary School. This should be a fun trip and I know we're going to have lots to talk about.
