Light Snow in Central/South Alabama?

As illustrated in the above Short Range Ensemble map from the Storm Prediction Center, any precipitation that falls Wednesday in Central or South Alabama is likely to be snow. The blue areas on the map denote a 90 per cent chance that any precipitation that falls will be in the form of snow. That is NOT to say there will be a 90 per cent chance of snow!
As a vigorous shortwave moves toward the Gulf Coast tonight it may be able to squeeze out just enough moisture cause a few snow flurries or light snow showers. The lower levels will be so dry, however, that much of the snow flurry activity could evaporate before reaching the surface.
The best chance of seeing any of this light snow activity will be in southwestern and south central parts of the state in communities such as Demopolis, Thomasville, Selma, Greenville, and Montgomery.
No measurable accumulation is expected.
