...SNOW EXPECTED TO BRING SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS TO MOST OF CENTRAL
ALABAMA TUESDAY MORNING THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING...
.An arctic cold front will enter northwest Alabama Tuesday
morning and move southeastward across central Alabama Tuesday
afternoon into Tuesday night. This front should have enough
moisture and lift to generate a band of light to moderate snow,
which could potentially affect all of central Alabama. A second
band of heavier snow may also develop across the southeast
portions of the area Tuesday night and possibly produce higher
snowfall totals in this area. Though snowfall totals are forecast
to remain less than 2 inches, impacts to travel could be
significant due to temperatures falling into the 20s and teens
Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM THIS
MORNING TO 6 AM CST WEDNESDAY...
...WIND CHILL ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 9 PM THIS EVENING TO 9 AM
* WHAT...Snow expected. Very cold wind chills expected. Plan on
difficult travel conditions, including during the evening
commute. Total snow accumulations of up to one and a half inches
are expected, but isolated higher amounts cannot be ruled out.
Expect wind chills to range from 5 above zero to 5 below zero.
* WHERE...Portions of central, east central, northeast,
northwest, southeast and west central Alabama.
* WHEN...For the Winter Weather Advisory, from 6 AM this morning
to 6 AM CST Wednesday. For the Wind Chill Advisory, from 9 PM
this evening to 9 AM CST Wednesday.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Be prepared for reduced visibilities at
times. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little
as 30 minutes to exposed skin.
A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will
cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered
roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will
combine to create low wind chills. Frost bite and hypothermia can
occur if precautions are not taken. Make sure you wear a hat and
