Light snow, rain chances continue overnight

"When you get to the western midlands into Piedmont, as the rain is ending Friday night into Saturday it is a possibility that it could mix with a little snow", Linton said.

There is also a freeze warning that will go into effect at 3 A.M. tonight for Allen, Beauregard, and Vernon.

We've had our eye on the Friday forecast and have been watching it closely this week, and although we continue to see data wobbling back and forth in terms of rain vs a rain/snow mix, one thing that looks likely is that it's going to be a wet afternoon and evening commute. "Protect plants, pets and people all weekend!"

While the bulk of the precipitation with this system is expected to stay offshore, the northwest periphery of this system will likely track close enough to the coast to graze parts of the region with a light accumulation of snowfall.

By the afternoon, all of the rain will be gone and we will still have mostly cloudy skies. For most of us, this will be a cold rain. East of our viewing area will have better chances to see snow, and possibly accumulation. However, warm ground temperatures and light precipitation rates in this area should limit snow accumulations to nothing more than a dusting. Daytime highs will only reach the mid 40s. The greatest chance of wintry weather comes along and north of a line from Lafayette to Prattville to Camden - places like Demopolis, Selma, Marion, Billingsley, Clanton, Rockford and Alex City. The air is too dry over the northern third of the state for any meaningful precipitation tomorrow, and the low levels will be too warm for snow tomorrow across southeast Alabama. It should come through Monday night and will not bring any rain. At the same time we will still have scattered showers.

Sunshine returns. Some temperatures may drop to the upper 20s on the Northshore with low to mid 30s on the Southshore. It will be a welcoming sight after all of the rain, and cloudiness we have had recently.
