FIRST ALERT ACTION DAY: Wintry weather to affect parts of MS overnight

Friday morning on your commute to work will be wet at the very least.

Rainfall totals are still forecast to reach 2 to 3 inches across the entire area. This includes places in Alabama like Thomasville, Grove Hill, Jackson, Millry and Butler.

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. Moisture will continue to stream in as another blast of cold air comes southward - this will result in a changeover from rain to a wintry mix that could result in some minor accumulations on grassy surfaces and cold, elevated areas. "Snow accumulations will generally be light and range from 1/4" through 1".

The rainy weather will continue Thursday and daytime temperatures are only supposed to climb to 47 degrees. The higher snow rates will most likely come sometime between 8 a.m. and noon; the precipitation tapers off tomorrow afternoon. We will have some light freezes on the Northshore with lows in the lower 30s, and we will have some frost on the Southshore with lows in the upper 30s.

Huffman said some cold air is still moving in behind the cold front, causing temperatures to drop even lower Wednesday night. Of course a lot to watch between now and then, and things can and will change, so be sure to stay up with current updates, especially if you are in Central Alabama. If it does fall, it will be the first snow the state has seen this season. Temperatures will once again stay on the cold side, with afternoon readings only in the lower and middle 40s.

These stretches of black ice may persist for a time into Saturday morning, before temperatures warm above freezing.

The cold air has arrived in central North Carolina and it is now looking a little more likely that some snow could fall later this week in central North Carolina.
