Winter Weather Tonight/Early Tomorrow – Update at 3:14 p.m.
February 28, 2009 4 Comments
Well, it’s looking like we will see at least some snowfall across our area late tonight/early Sunday. An upper level low will move into the area later this evening. As you’ve noticed, we’ve already cooled of quite a bit today… temperatures have been falling. We’ll see a cold rain to start off with later this evening, and overnight, that rain will turn over to snow.
There could be areas of 1 to 3 inches of snow in the area… much of it accumulating on grassy surfaces. With systems like this, there could be a narrow band of heavier snowfall.
This shouldn’t cause major travel issues… as temperatures will be in the 40s by Sunday afternoon.
This evening, we will have a better handle on possible snowfall accumulations as we get fresh data and computer models. As of my writing this, there are no winter weather advisories for West Alabama.
With weather systems like this, it’s hard to pinpoint all the facets of the forecast until a short time before it happens.
We’ll have blog updates here online, and Richard Scott will have the full forecast tonight, on WVUA News at 10:00.
