    With this much model inconsistency I can't imagine any forecast is made with confidence right now. Certainly this is a wait and see situation.
    Aren't ground temperatures down in Georgia still pretty warm?

    Do yourself a favor and ignore all the Atlanta TV mets.

    Warm, yes, but the next couple nights below freezing will help the mountains. Ground temps south of the mountains in GA are never fantastic, even in January/February. Certainly better than now but always a concern.

    I think the HRRR will be what to watch. Some pretty significant amounts in East AL/West GA.

    I'd imagine pretty soon. Models have accumulating snow in the ATL metro beginning early tomorrow.

    It's gonna be a close call for the I-20/59 corridor in West and Central AL. It's going to be a sharp cut off. Nothing to flurries to accumulating snow all within 10-20 miles. Where that sets up will be key. I don't think we get much more than a couple flurries in Tuscaloosa proper, myself...but we'll see.

    I mean, I realize that it's a tough forecast and I also realize that it won't be a major, catastrophic event, but dang ....you're right. They are barely talking about it AT ALL.

    Never underestimate that NW trend. 24 hours ago every model had me with nothing. Now most show a few inches. Granted I'm in a very climo-favored location but still

    Sure seems that way with the latest mesoscale guidance. Has accumulating snow pushing further NW.

    Latest SREF shows BHM with just under 2" of snow as the mean.

    NAM is really aggressive with the northern extent of the accumulating snow. Hardest hit along the I-20/59 corridor.
