|Severe Weather Information|
Thursday, February 6th @ 2 p.m.
Due to our warm(er) temperatures, NWS Birmingham will not be issuing a winter weather advisory for us at this time.
We have a 30% chance of precipitation, which is 10% lower than predicted this morning. Precipitation should begin to fall around 4 p.m. this afternoon. It will continue until 9 p.m., with no expected accumulation. Most should melt as it hits the ground. Tonight, around 2 a.m., temperatures will drop down to 28-29 degrees and should be back above freezing by 9 a.m. tomorrow morning.
Autauga EMA will continue to monitor and apprise us of any changes. If we do have any precipitation, please be mindful of our bridges in the early morning hours. There is no Friday morning weather briefing scheduled at this time.
Thursday, February 6th @ 8:30 a.m.
An upper level disturbance will move through the Southeast Today. Temperatures across the area will warm to above freezing during the morning hours. Precipitation will spread into the area from west to east beginning this morning. While initially dry at the surface, the temperatures aloft will moisten up through the morning. As the ice crystals, snow aloft begins to fall from the top of a column of air this morning it will moisten the dry air at the surface and eventually make it to the surface.
This will lead to the possibility of a mixture of rain and snow along and near the Interstate 85 corridor, and a mix of light snow and sleet near and along the Interstate 20 corridor. High uncertainty continues with this system with temperatures just above freezing and timing of precipitation. A couple of degrees difference could result in either all rain or all snow. Temperatures will likely increase through mid morning and then drop as the afternoon begins. Some of the models are indicated the best chance for the wintry mix will be between 12 and 6 pm.
Accumulations are even more uncertain due to the temperatures. With temperatures above freezing, expect accumulations will be light with only a dusting or so. The highlighted area is the area most likely to see minor accumulations. This area could shift slightly. Please check back for the latest graphicast as the forecast may change. Temperatures are the big difference between this event and the last event. Temperatures this time will likely start out slightly above freezing when last event they were down in the teens and 20s.
