This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the counties served by the
National Weather Service office in Birmingham.

.DAY ONE...Outlook Through Tonight.

There is a slight chance for a wintry mix of precipitation this
afternoon and evening across the northern part of our forecast area.
Forecast confidence in accumulating wintry precipitation is very low,
and precipitation could end before the coldest air arrives.

Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 35 mph are possible
along and behind the front through Midnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

A cold airmass will settle into the region over the weekend.
Temperatures on Sunday morning could briefly fall to around 15
degrees in localized cold spots locations across the North.

An arctic cold front will slide into the region Monday night into
Tuesday and could provide some wintry precipitation to the region.
There is still some timing and consistency that needs to be ironed
out, so the confidence remains low.

An even colder airmass is expected to arrive for Tuesday through
Thursday. Temperatures Tuesday night into Wednesday morning could
fall well into the teens with wind chill values near or below zero.
Winds will become lighter for Wednesday night into Thursday, but
temperatures could once again fall into the teens.


Activation of storm spotters and emergency management cannot be
ruled out for today but is not expected at this time.
