The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a Winter Storm Watch for portions of North-Central and Northeast Alabama on Thursday. This includes the following counties: Cullman, Dekalb, Jackson, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marshall, and Morgan.
As a strong upper level passes through the region, it will bring with it the potential for rain changing to snow Thursday morning. Accumulations are possible, mainly in grassy areas. Accumulations of 1-3″ are possible, 2-4″ in the higher elevations of Northeast Alabama.
Expect roads to be mainly wet during the day on Thursday, but as colder air arrives Thursday night, any remaining moisture on area roadways may freeze – especially on bridges and overpasses. Use caution when traveling Thursday night.
For now, the Winter Storm Watch does NOT include Lauderdale, Colbert, and Franklin counties in the Shoals area. Light snow is possible in the Shoals, but the current thinking is that it will likely not be enough to produce any significant accumulation.
With upper level lows there are usually some surprises, so check in for any possible adjustments to the forecast over the next 12 hours or so.
Below is a map indicating the most likely areas for significant snowfall accumulation on Thursday. This does not nessacarily indicate totals – just the overall potential for accumulation. Expecting accumulations ranging from a dusting to 3″. However, isolated higher amounts of 4-5″ are possible over extreme NE Alabama (i.e. Dekalb, Cherokee counties).
