Monday, January 27 Forecast Discussion

Plenty of winter watches, warnings, and advisories are in effect for Tuesday into Wednesday as a low pressure center will develop along the cold front that passed through earlier today and will send snow in our direction for Tuesday.

Timing
As of now, snowfall looks to begin between 9am and noon and then end for northern locations by 5pm with southern locations (those closer to Highway 84) through the overnight hours.

Obviously, this is a major travel time, so afternoon and evening travel, especially the closer to the coast you get, is ill-advised.

Amounts
North of Interstate 20 (including Philadelphia, DeKalb, Louisville, Macon, Scooba, Aliceville): Flurries to a light dusting

Interstate 20 to Highway 18 (including Meridian, Newton, Decatur, Union, Forest, Livingston, Demopolis, Quiman, Bay Springs, Raleigh): Dusting to 1 inch

Highway 18 Southward (including Butler, Silas, Coffeeville, Grove Hill, Laurel, Waynesboro, Ellisville): 1 to 4 inches

Impacts
Obviously, any snowfall amounts will impact travel. We will most likely stay below freezing until Wednesday morning, and so if we get any snowfall to melt (as we should reach freezing Tuesday evening), it will turn to ice and become another headache. Another impact will be the brutal cold and wind with wind chills being 10 to 15 degrees below the actual temperature.
