URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Birmingham AL

CENTRAL ALABAMA THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING...

move southeastward 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 tonight and possibly produce higher snowfall
totals in this area. Snowfall north of the I-85 corridor will
generally be 1 to 1.5 inches. Areas along and south of the I-85
corridor may see 1.5 to 2 inches of snow with locally higher
depending on exactly where the heavier band sets up north of
Though snowfall totals are forecast to remain less than 2 inches,
impacts to travel could be significant due to temperatures falling
into the teens and 20s this afternoon and evening.
