HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
The 48 Storm Team is tracking a powerful arctic front that will bring rain, snow and some of the coldest temperatures in nearly a decade to the Tennessee Valley.
Sunday will begin cloudy, breezy and fairly mild. By the afternoon, scattered showers will arrive from the west and quickly track east during the evening before exiting during the early overnight hours.
Cold air will rush in before the precipitation exits, briefly changing the rain over to snow. Because this window is fairly brief, accumulations will be fairly light, around a dusting to half-inch with up to 1-inch possible in the higher elevations. In addition to snow accumulation, any leftover moisture from the earlier rain will ‘flash freeze,' causing some icy travel spots late Sunday into Monday.
Hazardous travel is only one concern with this system. Temperatures will be plummeting into the single digits with wind chill values below zero by Monday morning. A wind chill warning has been issued for Jackson and DeKalb Counties (AL) and Lincoln, Franklin, and Moore Counties (TN) from 4 a.m. Monday morning until 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Wind chills could drop to 10 - 20 degrees below zero during the overnights and only recover to around 0 degrees during the afternoons. The rest of the Tennessee Valley will be under a wind chill advisory for wind chill values ranging from 0 to -10 degrees.
We are not expected to climb above the freezing mark until midday Wednesday.
As with any winter weather event stay tuned to the WAFF 48 Storm Team on-air and online to continuing updates and changes to the forecast.
