SNOW AND RUMORS OF SNOW: Yes, there is a chance of snow over parts of North Alabama Friday night into early Saturday morning. No, this will not be another Blizzard of 93.
As cold air rushes in, there is a chance rain could change to snow over about the northern third of Alabama late Friday night and early Saturday. It is a classic case of cold air chasing departing moisture, and traditionally this kind of setup does not bring meaningful accumulation.
The ground could turn white in a few spots, especially across higher terrain. For now, no travel impact is expected.
The big story is the cold air will settle in for the weekend. Temperatures will drop well down into the 20s by Sunday morning; this will be a very significant late-season freeze. Growers need to make preparations now for these temperatures.
Will this be the last freeze of the season? Probably not. Long-time readers know my advice… Don’t plant anything harmed by a freeze or frost until April 15.
