A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through 6am on Wednesday. A wintry mix (light rain, sleet, snow) will turn into light snow inland later this evening. Ongoing light wintry precipitation across parts of Choctaw & Wayne counties will continue through the evening. Wintry precipitation will continue to expand to the south and east through the late evening. A wintry mix is expected to develop for coastal areas tonight before turning to light snow then ending overnight. Light accumulations of freezing rain (less than 1/10th of an inch) before a transition to snow. Areas south of I-10 corridor will experience a longer period of freezing rain before changing to sleet and snow; while a shorter period of freezing rain and sleet north of I-10 before turning to snow. Total snow accumulations overnight will range from a 1/2 inch to 1 inch and perhaps as high as up to 2 inches in heavier bands that form along and east of I-65 over both interior southwest and south central Alabama. Conditions will very slowly improve through noon tomorrow. BIG ISSUE -Temperatures will fall well below freezing tonight, so any lingering wintry accumulation on the roads will lead to very dangerous travel conditions...even after the precipitation ends.
A Hard Freeze Warning is in effect tonight through early Wednesday morning for areas generally along and west of I-65. The Hard Freeze Warning expands into the ENTIRE AREA Wednesday night into Thursday morning. As a reminder, a hard freeze occurs when temperatures fall near or below 20 degrees across the area.
