Deep South Snow Expected Friday from Parts of Louisiana to North Carolina

08 December, 2017, 02:08 | Author: Edward Snyder
  • It's going to be another cold wet windy day in New Orleans forecasters with the National Weather Service said Thursday. There's a 100 chance of rain and temperatures won't climb higher than 47 degrees during the day. Thursday night the temper

School districts across the area will be closed due to freezing temperatures, cold rain and maybe even a flurry or two.

PLACEMENT: The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for areas south of a line from Cedar Bluff to Oneonta to Tuscaloosa to Livingston, and north of a line from Jackson to Selma to Prattville to Dadeville and on to Lafayette.

"When you get to the western midlands into Piedmont, as the rain is ending Friday night into Saturday it is a possibility that it could mix with a little snow", Linton said.

- When exactly the rain might turn to sleet and when the sleet might turn to snow (if it occurs). Best spot to see minor accumulations of snow will be along I-20 and I-85 in North Georgia. Brining roads before snowfall prevent snow and ice from bonding to paved surfaces, enabling easy removal.

Snow in the Deep South?

Right now we continue to have light scattered showers working across the region as the result of a shortwave moving over the region, so check we have the moisture in the atmosphere.




As this front slides down over Acadiana it will cause temperatures to fall dropping into the low to mid 30s by Friday morning. It's important to note that temperatures in the mountains will be below freezing, but they will be farther away from the moisture.

Thus as this colder air arrives that is when the rain will switch over to big wet snow flakes making for a very picturesque scene for Acadiana. This post will be updated throughout Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.

"What's going on with this really cold air and why we're getting snow so early, too - this is pretty early in the season to see snow fall - is related to the configuration of the jet stream", Carroll said. Some areas could receive a small amount of snow accumulation - between half an inch to one inch - depending on conditions.

After days of uncertainty and questionable forecasts, it is starting to look like Gwinnett County may see snow on Friday.

Sunday: Partly sunny, high near 32.
