I hope you are having a great Sunday! Weather conditions will really begin to change over the next 6 to 12 hours, as a disturbance works in from the northwest. Already, showers are breaking out over much of western Alabama this afternoon, and this will continue the rest of the day. With some really cold air above the surface, we are dealing with convective showers. Later this evening, as some of the colder air works down to the surface, expect a change over to rain and snow mix late and eventually all snow after midnight. We’ll be watching rain change over later today in Mississippi. There have been some reports in the Starkville area of this changeover occurring. Graupel, which is a partially melted snow flake, fell shortly after 2 p.m. over there. At 4 p.m., light snow was falling in Greenville, MS .
As the colder air works in from the northwest, most of the area will see snow flakes flying around late tonight and early tomorrow. Most of the activity will be gone after the noon time hour. We don’t expect any travel problems at this time, but it is possible to have a quick dusting on grassy surfaces north of Tuscaloosa late tonight and early tomorrow. Most of what falls will be light and won’t last long. Temperatures are expected to remain above freezing .
Monday night, we’ll have sub-freezing temperatures, with lows near 29. A nice warm-up can be expected on Tuesday, as highs recover into the lower 50s and even lower 60s by Wednesday. Wednesday night, we’ll have showers move into the area. Temperatures will remain well above freezing, so no worries with snow then, On Thursday, morning showers will end and we’ll have sun return. Highs will be back into the middle 50s on through the weekend, with partly cloudy skies.
