Some light snow is likely tomorrow night across North Alabama as the cold air rushes in with potential for a little light accumulation.{}

As stated here since yesterday, a dusting to 1/2 inch is possible over North Alabama, but the snow isn't a "big deal" some places won't have any accumulation. The best chance of seeing one inch of so is across the higher terrain of Northeast Alabama, especially Madison, Jackson, and DeKalb Counties.


One concern is that temperatures will fall from the 50s into the 20s in a very short amount of time (30 minutes or so). There will be water on roads from rain showers ahead of the Arctic front, and that standing water will turn to ice very quickly, leading to some icy spots on roads. I don't think this will be widespread, but no doubt you will need to be very careful and look for "black ice" if you are traveling anywhere tomorrow night and Monday morning. And, where snow falls, that will generate some icy places as well.
