Wintry mix possible across Southwest Louisiana early Friday morning

StormTracker13 Thursday Forecast Rain and sleet Thursday, light snow possible overnight in Houston area

Because much of the snow is falling during the day and temperatures are marginally cold, snow should accumulate more on non-paved surfaces, though higher elevations and on the north side of hills we may have to do some minor plowing of the snow.

PLACEMENT: The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for areas south of a line from Cedar Bluff to Oneonta to Tuscaloosa to Livingston, and north of a line from Jackson to Selma to Prattville to Dadeville and on to Lafayette.

WDSU meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy said most areas will only see flurries with little if any accumulation; however, a few spots - especially on the northern boundary between Louisiana and MS - could see less than an inch of accumulation on grassy surfaces, rooftops and elevated surfaces, including roadways. Along that front, an area of low pressure continues to develop in the northwestern Gulf, and extensive precipitation extended from Texas into portions of Louisiana, southern Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and the eastern Carolinas early Thursday. Most accumulations should be on grassy and elevated surfaces, such as cars or roofs. Accumulations will be light because of a relatively warm ground and air temperatures above freezing. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain.

ACCUMULATION: Most likely along the NC/SC border and in adjacent areas of northeast Georgia.

StormTracker13 Thursday Forecast
First Warning Forecast: Rain, Snow, And More Rain

Thursday will be another cold day as temperatures struggle to reach 40 degrees under cloudy sky in Lubbock and northerly wind speeds become gusty by afternoon. Expect temperatures to drop into the mid to upper 20s by Saturday morning. With temperatures well above freezing, the sleet will quickly melt on impact. There may be a few hours before sunrise Friday where the cold air and moisture overlap to produce light snow showers, especially south of I-10.

REMEMBER: With nearly every winter weather event in Alabama, there is a surprise or two.

NEXT WEEK: Dry weather will likely continue with temperatures below average; a new surge of cold air arrives Tuesday and Wednesday.
