Now speaking of snow we do have some of it in our weekend forecast. But you will not need the shovels or snow boots!
Only a few brief sprinkles or flurries will fall on this Friday evening so the good news is we should stay mainly dry for the football games. Wear the layers as wind chills will be in the 30s with a gusty southwest wind at 11 to 22 mph. By Saturday night and Sunday we will have a re-inforcing shot of cold air with a trough of low pressure moving through. This will actually have a little more lift with it and could bring some "cat tracks" or a dusting of snow to the northern tier of our area. You can see the snow map above highlights areas of Newton, Jasper, Pulaski, and Fulton Counties. White County could also see a brief dusting on the grassy surfaces as you wake up on Sunday. Otherwise it is Brrrrrrrrrr....time to wear the layers and we do have a hot chocoloate advisory. I will be back here on the blog to tell you how long this pattern will last and make sure to tune in tonight at 11 to stay warm and watch some area football that is just heating up!
