A bit of snow will be possible for those in parts of north Alabama on Thursday night but the National Weather Service says no accumulation is expected except for the higher elevations in northeast Alabama where a dusting to possibly up to an inch will be possible.
Forecasters say those areas mainly north of the Tennessee River will have the best chances for seeing snowflakes.
Snow flurries will be possible Friday morning as far south as the Interstate 20 corridor, but no accumulations are expected there as well. Affected areas could see a wintry mix starting around 10:00 tonight (Thursday) in north Alabama. It could transition to all snow overnight, and last into Friday morning.
The National Weather Service expects temperatures to remain above freezing in most areas except for those higher elevations.
This isn’t the only chance for snow in Alabama this week. Forecasters are also watching the weekend – when another weather system could bring the chance of rain, snow, or sleet into the state.
The Weather Service says that system could produce some measurable snowfall that could be a bit more widespread than the previous system – however, forecasters say specifics are subject to change at this point.
