TALLADEGA, Ala. – The Talladega Co. Emergency Management Agency is warning people about the possibility of winter weather threats on Tuesday going into early Wednesday. According to TCEMA, snow may bring significant impacts to much of Central Alabama.

An Arctic cold front will enter Northwest Alabama Tuesday morning and move southeastward across Central Alabama Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. This front should have enough moisture and lift to generate a band of light to moderate snow, which could potentially affect all of our forecast area.

TCEMA says it  will need to watch and see if a second band can develop across the southern third of the area during the evening and provide a higher total down there as well. Though snowfall amounts are expected to remain less than 2 inches, impacts to travel could be significant due to temperatures falling into the 20s as the snow occurs.

Plan on slippery road conditions, especially during the evening commute on Tuesday.

This winter weather advisory is in effect from 6 a.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.
