Parts of Alabama are under a Winter Storm Warning.  Many other counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory. On this important video, I’ll show you the expanded Warning Map.  I have updated Future radar, and possible accumulation map.  PLUS, the latest on the Coldest weekend of the season, so far,  by far.  Feel free to share this post.  We’ll talk winter weather this morning on your Friday weather briefing

 

The Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory counties was greatly expanded early this morning. Warning area: 1-3″ of snow.  Advisory area:  up to 1/2″ accumulation, mainly in grassy areas and elevated surfaces.

 

Hi-res Future Radar (HRRR) shows the Mixed precip in pink…and snow in blue.  The dark blue is heavier snow.

The Euro model suggests heaviest snow accumulations will be in the higher elevation of East Alabama and into  West Georgia

 

The COLD next few days.  A little recovery by Monday afternoon, before it turns colder again Tuesday.

The GFS 16 day temp trend shows some later in the month temperature moderation, into the start of Christmas week.
