12:15pm Update… Light Snow in West AL.. No Accumulations or Travel Problems.. #alwx


At 12:15pm, a batch of light snow and flurries covers a good chunk of west Alabama. Fortunately, the ground is too warm and the snow isn’t falling heavy enough to cause travel issues or accumulations. You will likely see some large, fluffy snow flakes at some point today. Based off reports under this band, snow accumulations are unlikely along I-20 in cities like Tuscaloosa and Birmingham. The best chance of getting a little snow to stick on the ground will be along and north of the HWY 278 corridor, mainly in areas near and northeast of Gadsden. Reports are there are lots of big snow flakes in west Alabama under the band, but they are melting on contact with the warm/wet ground. The flakes will be pretty to see, but they will not cause issues for our area.

I do not expect travel issues today, as temperatures remain above freezing and the road temperatures remain warm from recent warmer temperatures. After this band pushes east of your area, additional snow flurries or light snow showers are possible into the afternoon, but the risk of accumulation appears low. Again, the best chance of snow to stick will be in north and northeast Alabama.
