Chilly winter weather conditions will be widespread across Alabama on Friday, including the chance for light snow around the Bimingham area and south.
Friday's snow could create slick travel conditions. In the Cullman, the high is expected to reach 38, but snow is not expected at this time.
A winter weather advisory begins at 3 a.m. when rain starts to mix with and change to snow across areas to the south of I-20. Snow could arrive as early as 6 a.m. in many areas under the advisory. By mid-morning hours, snow will be falling and accumulating on grassy and elevated surfaces. Remember that elevated surfaces freeze first and we could see slick spots developing on bridges and overpasses.
Precipitation looks to taper off from northwest to southeast during the afternoon hours and temperatures will jump back up above freezing by a few degrees.
The advisory will be in effect until 6 p.m. Most of the snow accumulation will occur on grassy and elevated surfaces and will range from trace amounts to a half-inch for areas north of I-20. South of I-20 amounts will range from a half-inch to one inch, and the higher terrain along and south of I-20 and east of I-65 will see 1-3 inches of snowfall.
