Ala(AP). Old Man winter is making a return visit to Alabama this weekend. Meteorologists say counties in east-central and northeast Alabama could receive a wintry mix of precipitation in the form of freezing rain and sleet.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham has posted a winter storm watch for east-central counties for tomorrow (Friday) night through Saturday morning. The watch covers nine counties -- Blount, Calhoun, Cherokee, Clay, Cleburne, Etowah, Randolph, St. Clair and Talladega.
Colder temperatures already have moved into the state -- highs today will range in the 40s north and 50s south. Lows tonight will dip into the upper 20s and 30s statewide.
