Showers and thunderstorms have affected North Alabama for much of the day, but they are gradually moving out of the area this afternoon. There were several reports of small hail across the area, especially in parts of Marion, Lawrence, Limestone, and Madison counties. Most of the hail was below “severe criteria” of 1.00″ in diameter.
Showers will taper off this evening, and much cooler air will invade North Alabama tonight, with lows overnight falling to around 30.
There may be enough residual moisture early Wednesday morning for a snow flurry, but it is unlikely, and will not be a big deal either way. Sky becomes mostly sunny on Wednesday with a high in the upper 40s to around 50.
WARMING TREND: Temperatures will be heading up through the weekend. Thursday & Friday will feature chilly mornings in the upper 20s/low 30s, but Thursday afternoon highs will reach the upper 50s, with low 60s on Friday.
The weekend looks great – both Saturday and Sunday, although clouds will be increasing by Sunday. Afternoon high temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s!
Next chance for rain comes Monday with cooler air arriving by the middle of next week.

There is no exact science to the lines drawn on the snowfall map below…


This is just to give you a general idea of what kind of snowfall accumulations are expected – as well as what areas are expected to receive the higher snowfall amounts.


It looks like Arkansas will take the brunt of this storm tomorrow with up to a foot expected there, however it will begin weakening as it approaches our area. This is why you see the 4″ amounts in North Mississippi tapering off as you get closer to Alabama.


Will update the map if needed later tonight or on Wednesday.
