BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
As we close out February, there is yet again more winter weather in the forecast.
The FOX6 Stormwarn Team is watching Tuesday night closely as moisture and cold air will likely overlap after midnight. The best chance for wintry precipitation will occur along the Highway 278 corridor between midnight and 6 a.m.
The sky will remain cloudy throughout the rest of Tuesday with scattered showers possible. Precipitation will increase in coverage by midnight and spread eastward throughout the early morning hours Wednesday.
What can we expect? Rain is likely tonight prior to the cold air arriving. Areas south of I-20 should experience all rain while places to the north will see rain/sleet and even some snowfall. Travel should not be a problem based on very warm ground temperatures. Surface temperatures in the upper 50s so anything that falls will likely end up as a puddle.
It's possible we could get a burst of snowfall overnight toward daybreak that could result in accumulation in the grassy areas or some side roads. That's more of a worst case scenerio and will mainly be in Marion, Winston, Cullman, Blount, Etowah, and Cherokee Counties. Overnight lows will range from 32-34 degrees.
The precipitation along and south of a line from Fayette to Birmingham and Anniston should remain all rain. A few snowflakes or sleet pellets could mix in just before the precipitation tapers off, but no problems are expected in these areas.
This won't be a major winter storm, but rather a setup that could bring some accumulations in far north and northeast locations, especially in the grassy areas. The precipitation should move out by 10 a.m. Wednesday with clouds slowly dissipating.
Wednesday will be a cold and blustery day. Expect highs near 40 during the afternoon with clearing skies. It will be even colder Tuesday night with lows in the upper teens.
We will continue to fine tune the forecast throughout the afternoon and evening. You can find frequent updates on our weather blog at http://myfoxtracker.com.
We will also have LIVE updates on FOX6 News beginning at 9 p.m. It will stream live online at www.FoxAlabamaLive.com and on the WBRC News and Weather apps.
