More Snow Pictures…Thursday Update 9:20 PM

While we’re talking about snow…Whitney Williams sends us these pictures from Quincy, Illinois, where they’ve been dealing with a snow storm today. This is the same system that brought some snow showers and snow flurries to parts of north Alabama this afternoon. They really haven’t had all that much snow this year, so this is a big change for them as well.

It’s Cold! Thursday Forecast Update 8:20 pm

Cold air advection is dropping temperatures quickly this evening. Much of the day has been cold, but many spots are in the 30s as of 8pm. A breezy west to northwest wind is making it feel like it’s in the 20s outside. Temperatures will continue to drop tonight, with a low in the middle 20s for much of the area. Hamilton and Haleyville will likely fall into the lower 20s. Skies have gone clear over all of our area, and any left over snow showers are moving out. The lift associated with the upper air trough has moved northeast of our area. I don’t expect anymore snow showers or flurries for the rest of the night. Flurries are still flying across the northeast corner of the state, but that will end over the next couple of hours. Be sure to scroll down for some snow pictures taken across extreme north Alabama earlier today.

Despite the sun tomorrow, temperatures will remain cold. Winds will relax a bit as a surface high moves into the area. Temperatures will stay in the 40s all day. I wouldn’t be shocked if areas north of Fayette and Jasper stay in the 30s. Your full forecast is several posts below from earlier this afternoon.

Snow Sticking in Extreme North Alabama…Thursday Update 5:50 PM

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Check out these snow pictures from WHNT in Huntsville and WVUA viewer pictures. These are pictures from the Tennessee Valley, where snow has fallen heavy enough to stick. We’ve had reports of light snow and flurries as far south as Fayette and Walker County today, but the ground is too warm for anything to stick around here. The flurries and snow showers will continue to move northeast of the area as the deep upper air trough progresses east.

Cold Now, Warmer Soon…Thursday Afternoon Forecast Update 4:45 pm

A good Thursday evening to you! Some parts of the area have picked up a little light snow this afternoon, but most of central and west Alabama is dealing with cold and dry conditions. The snow flurries and light snow is happening north of Jasper and Fayette this evening and will continue through midnight. Clouds have cleared in parts of southwest Alabama, and the clearing line will gradually spread northeast through tonight.

Winds will remain rather gusty through this evening, so temperatures won’t get as cold as they could in this type of airmass. Cold air advection will still bring temperatures down into the middle 20s, so while temperatures will not fall into the teens, wind chill values will reach the teens. An Arctic high will move right over central Alabama Friday night through early Sunday. This will bring lots of sun, cool days and very cold nights. Look for highs to reach the middle 40s on Friday with decreasing winds. Lows will fall into the lower 20s Friday night.

With a sunny sky through the weekend and light to calm winds, conditions will feel much better during the afternoon hours. Highs will reach the lower 50s on Saturday and middle 50s on Sunday. Even temperatures at night will modify over the weekend, with 30s both Sunday and Monday morning.

The surface high will slide east of the area on Monday and Tuesday. A south flow will develop and usher in warm and moist conditions from the Gulf. While it won’t be as warm as last weekend, temperatures will reach the lower 60s on Monday and Tuesday. We will continue under a very progressive pattern, so another storm system will move through our area on Tuesday. Look for clouds to increase on Monday and Tuesday. Showers and storms will arrive late Monday and on Tuesday. Another strong cold front will push through the state on Tuesday, which means another shot of chilly weather on Wednesday and Thursday. This next upper air trough won’t be nearly as deep as our current trough, so temperatures will not get as cold. Lows will slip below freezing Wednesday night.

Where Snow Flurries Will and Won’t Fall…Thursday Update 3:40 PM

Here’s a look at Hometeam Interactive Radar this afternoon. Light snow and flurries are falling across our northern Counties this afternoon and evening. The white line is where I expect the southern edge of the flurries and light snow. Snow is coming down heavy enough to cause a dusting across parts of northwest Alabama, but that is for areas north of Hamilton and Haleyville.

If you live south of Vernon, Fayette, Jasper and Ashville, expect conditions to remain dry through tonight. Even where flurries and light snow is falling now, this activity will end from west to east by midnight. Skies will become clear late tonight and we’ll enjoy lots of sun on Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will stay in the 40s all day on Friday, but we should return into the lower 50s on Saturday. More details to come this afternoon…

Light Snow and Flurries This Eve…Thursday Update 2:20 PM

A good Thursday afternoon to you! It’s much colder this evening, as a surge of Arctic air moves into the deep south. Temperatures will continue to fall this evening, with many spots falling to the 30s by sunset. There’s a little light snow and flurries happening across northwest Alabama right now. This batch of light precip is moving southeast and will impact cities such as Vernon, Haleyville, Hamilton, Fayette, Jasper, Cullman, Birmingham and areas points northeast. There could be a few flakes as far south as Tuscaloosa County, but most of this activity will remain to our north. Even where the flakes to do fall, the ground is way too warm for snow to stick and the roads are too warm for any problems.

Look for some light snow and flakes to fall between now and midnight tonight. After that, the upper air trough will continue to move east of the area and takes any snow flurries with it. Temperatures will get very cold tonight, with lows between 22 and 26. The wind will put wind chill values in the teens for much of the night.
