The National Weather Service in Birmingham this morning predicted that Cherokee County should not be affected by the winter weather system moving into Alabama.
“If we were to get anything at all it would possibly be a few snow flurries, but that isn’t very likely at this point,” said Cherokee County EMA Director Shawn Rogers.
NWS-Birmingham did mention the possibility for some winter weather on Monday and maybe even Friday of next week, Rogers said.
“But it’s still a little too far out to tell.” He said. “The winds will pick up today as we get into the afternoon hours. We are currently under a wind advisory. The current temperature is 60. Lows for tonight will be 28, so that is a big drop in temperature.”
Rogers said Saturday night’s low will be 18, and Sunday’s will be around 20.
“Monday the low will be 24. Tuesday and Wednesday the lows will be in the lower teens,” Rogers said. “I hope everyone has a safe weekend and stay warm.”
