FIRST ALERT Weather Day for snow potential on Friday

Cold, Gloomy, Soggy Wednesday-Friday!

Light snow and rain has been spotted in and around the city of Lubbock but we have no accumulation of snow to report. Most communities are in the mid 40s.

And... a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for parts of southwest Alabama and southeast MS, with 1 to 3 inches possible in the warning area.

There is a slim chance part of Southeast Louisiana could see some snow flurries.

For folks in Central Alabama, generally along and south of Interstate 20 and north of the USA 80 and Interstate 85 corridor, there could be some weather excitement as we end the work week. Temperatures will warm up to the lower 60s in the afternoon. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain. This will cause a gradual transition of ongoing rain to snow.

Winter weather advisories and winter storm warnings have been issued for many parts of south and central MS through Friday afternoon. Best spot to see minor accumulations of snow will be along I-20 and I-85 in North Georgia. Temperatures through the day will hover around 35 degrees. Even colder air will arrive Friday, and it could be cold enough for the rain to switch over to a wintry mix across the midstate.

Nussbaum forecasts more of the same tomorrow. Expect snow to develop after 3 a.m. and continue through Friday morning. Low temperatures will be in the 20s.

REMEMBER: With nearly every winter weather event in Alabama, there is a surprise or two. You can see First Alert VIPIR 9, detailed forecasts, weather maps, and severe weather alerts.

A cold rain mixed with sleet pellets is expected during the day on Thursday, with temperatures staying in the 40s all day.

Looking more like more rain than snow for Middle Georgia based on a Thursday afternoon weather update from the National Weather Service at Peachtree City.
