Cullman County residents missed out on the snow earlier this week. That may not be the case over the next couple of days.

Snow is in the forecast for much of the day on Saturday. How much snow residents will see will depend on where a surface low tracks as it moves across the state and how much the temperature drops.

"Right now it looks like little or no accumulation, but that could change if the low tracks a little further south," said Robert Boyd of the National Weather Service office in Huntsville.

A mixture of rain and snow is expected between 3 and 6 a.m. Saturday, changing over to light snow or snow flurries throughout much of the remainder of the day. The event is expected to began as rain tonight.

"There may be a significant amount of precipitation in the form of rain," Boyd said. "If that is the case, the ground will be pretty wet when the snow begins to fall. That should keep any accumulation low."

Boyd said the best chance for an accumulating snow will come in the northeast corner of the state, along the Tennessee border or in higher elevations.

"There may also be a higher chance of an accumulation in northwestern Alabama since the temperatures there will drop a little earlier than other parts of the (Tennessee) Valley."

The high for today is expected to be around 50, before dropping to around the freezing mark tonight. The high Saturday is only expected to reach into the mid-30s, with the low dropping into the mid 20s.

While little accumulation is expected here, the weather system moving through is expected to cause a snow storm along the Atlantic coast during the rest of the weekend and the early part of next week.
