WRBL First Alert Weather Team - We are WEATHER AWARE this evening for snow showers and Wednesday for single digit wind chill values.

This evening as a cold front moves through. A light dusting to 1/2 inch of snow is possible Tuesday evening and overnight for Columbus, Auburn and farther north. A quarter to half inch of snow is possible for areas south of Columbus including Americus, Eufaula and Fort Gaines. Any snow will clear out by or before sunrise Wednesday morning. There should be no impact on travel Tuesday morning or afternoon, but roads could become slippery in spots if driving late Tuesday night and potentially early Wednesday morning. If heading to Atlanta or Birmingham, it will be a similar forecast with up to a 1/2 inch possible Tuesday night as well.

The bigger impact will be the bitter cold to follow Wednesday morning. Temperatures drop to the lower 20s Wednesday morning with wind chill values in the single digits to teens from midnight until noon Wednesday.

A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for most of Alabama 6 a.m. cst Tuesday until 6 a.m. Wednesday for snow potential. One quarter to a half inch of snow is possible for central Alabama (including Opelika, Auburn and Smiths Station).
