James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist mentioned on Facebook that “there is a chance of snow for over parts of North Alabama Friday night into early Saturday morning. No, this will not be another Blizzard of 93.”

Will There Be Any Accumulation?

Spann noted that “as cold air rushes in, there is a chance rain could change to snow over about the northern third of Alabama late Friday night and early Saturday. It is a classic case of cold air chasing departing moisture, and traditionally this kind of setup does not bring meaningful accumulation.” Also, at this time now there are no travel impacts are expected.

Very Cold Weekend

Please prepare for much colder temperatures this weekend. Our coverage area could experience highs in the 40s on Saturday. Then Sunday morning we could drop into the 20s. You also have to factor in the wind chill as well.
