Snow likely in Friday forecast

We'll hover in the 40s day and night until we get some clearing toward the weekend allowing lows at night to dip into the 30s. Highs today near seasonal hitting the lower 40s but winds will still be gusting at 15-20 miles per hour.

For folks in Central Alabama, generally along and south of Interstate 20 and north of the USA 80 and Interstate 85 corridor, there could be some weather excitement as we end the work week. Tomorrow we see more sun, and winds start to move back to the west, even southwest. Lows Thursday morning will likely be in the 30s north to the low 40s south. Daytime highs will remain in the upper 40s to low 50s.

The next system is much stronger and knocks temperatures down and brings a few flakes for the overnight into Sunday.

Thursday will be another cold day as temperatures struggle to reach 40 degrees under cloudy sky in Lubbock and northerly wind speeds become gusty by afternoon. A mix of rain and snow is possible across parts of southern MS and Alabama but impacts look minor. As highs reach to the lower 40s, the "feels like" temperature will be in the mid 30s. However, that's not to say that at least some snowflakes aren't possible over the next seven days as there are at least a few opportunities for some snow showers or flurries, though not guaranteed for everyone.

Light snow will develop Saturday morning. Lows drop to the lower 20s overnight. Temperatures are gonna be cold and this system will have just enough moisture to get things going. Wind chill values this afternoon will stay in the 20s. Even with the throwing around of the term "light" it shouldn't be taken lightly! Snow chances stand a 30% Tuesday and Wednesday as of now. Regardless, the cold pattern keeps chugging right along through next week.
