11AM Update

COLUMBUS, GA (WRBL)-Winter Weather Advisory: Watching all of our east-central Alabama Counties and northern counties tonight for road hazards Chambers, Troup, and Meriwether Counties.

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 PM CST THIS
AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...WET SNOW. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO ONE QUARTER 
  INCH POSSIBLE.

* WHERE...PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL ALABAMA.

* WHEN...UNTIL 3 PM CST THIS AFTERNOON.

* IMPACTS...PLAN ON SLIPPERY ROAD CONDITIONS.

The winds are howling and small weak branches will continue to snap with the winds this morning 20-40mph, which are including the gusts. Bundle up!

Over the next few hours from Highway 80 across east-central Alabama towards all of west-central Georgia we will begin to see snow flurries from 8 am-4 pm.

You have to travel a bit farther north where the surface readings are near 32° to see up to an inch and perhaps some slippery roads. So travel is not looking good north of the entire news 3 viewing area this late afternoon through later tonight.

The good news for us locally reading may feel like it is below freezing but the surface temperatures will remain above freezing, so we will not see any ice on the roads but that does not mean the snow will stick to grassy surfaces when the snow comes down but on the roads, it’ll just become wet.
