Active and Cold Weather Pattern

This is about as active and cold as it gets across the South, especially considering we’re late in February.

There will likely be a break in the rain for most of the day as the next upstream impulse gets going over Texas today.

We will be watching light precipitation that could reach west Alabama late this afternoon in the form of a mixture of rain and snow.

Surface temperatures will be warm enough to cause any snow to melt on impact.

For tonight, the models continue to struggle with the amount of moisture.

We may see some light snow for the far northern counties but a mixture of rain, snow and freezing rain along the I-20 corridor.

The models do agree in pushing the freezing line much farther south tonight…near a Demopolis to Clanton to Wedowee line by sunrise Tuesday.

It looks as though most of the precipitation will be exiting the area by midnight…with some light precip overnight and into early Tuesday morning.

We will be watching the latest developments and potential for additional wintry weather through the day.

The weather outlook for the week looks just as uncertain, with potential for additional wintry precipitation on Wednesday and Friday.
