New Forecast Model Rolling Back Impact of Weather System / UPDATE “Winter Weather Advisory” Cancelled

There have been some pretty big changes overnight for Alabama’s snow forecast.  It doesn’t mean it won’t snow, but it may not snow as much and for as long, forecasters said.  The National Weather Service has canceled both the winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories.

The weather service has lowered forecast snow totals and now thinks an inch or less will be possible through the morning hours in the places that get snow.  The National Weather Service in Birmingham cautioned that travel impacts will still be possible this morning in parts of the state as temperatures continue to drop. Bursts of heavier snow could also cause reduced visibilities, so take care on the roads.

Rain was moving across parts of north and central Alabama early Tuesday morning and some of that was changing over to snow.  But it’s moving fast and ground temperatures are warm enough to keep anything that hits the ground from accumulating.

Snow was reported in many counties in north and central Alabama so far this morning, and the weather service has gotten reports of it sticking to grassy surfaces, but so far it hasn’t accumulated.  The ground is proving to be too warm to allow for accumulations so far.

The National Weather Service in Huntsville said colder air has been slower to reach north Alabama than expected and dropped the winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories for the entire region.  Forecasters said temperatures are falling, but much drier air is now working into the area as well, which means “it will be difficult to see any real accumulations from what lingering light snow there is other than perhaps a light dusting or maybe a few tenths of an inch.”
