Friday snow in the sky but will it stick on the ground?

Mornings in the mid 30s to mid 40s and highs in the mid 60s.

With the cold temperatures, we now have warnings and advisories in effect for portions of Southwest Louisiana.

Rainfall totals are still forecast to reach 2 to 3 inches across the entire area. This includes places in Alabama like Thomasville, Grove Hill, Jackson, Millry and Butler.

ACCUMULATION: Most likely along the NC/SC border and in adjacent areas of northeast Georgia. This should lead to a mixture of rain and snow in our northern and western counties.

Most likely, there will be a 30- to 40-mile-wide strip of heavier snow, and trying to identify that far in advance is very hard to do. In these areas the rain/snow mix will possibly be intense enough to allow for possible accumulations on grassy surfaces during the day. Soil temperatures are around 50 degrees, and that will greatly limit the accumulation potential. Once again, the best chance of seeing snow will be generally in locations between Birmingham and Montgomery.

The cold air has been locked into the region with another blast coming southward through late today into Friday.

"However, it will stay cool with highs in the upper 50s as another dry cold front moves through". This will all get started after midnight, when temperatures will begin to fall near the freezing mark. Temperatures should go above freezing, into the mid to upper 30s, by late morning and through the afternoon, easing the ice issue on roads.

REMEMBER: With nearly every winter weather event in Alabama, there is a surprise or two. Of course a lot to watch between now and then, and things can and will change, so be sure to stay up with current updates, especially if you are in Central Alabama.

This would be the first snow event of the winter season and it's only happening because of the cold front that moved through Wednesday morning. Although somewhat milder weather returns for a cameo early next week, temperatures will remain below average. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including meteorologists at ABC 33/40.
