...LIGHT WINTRY MIX POSSIBLE ON SUNDAY ACROSS THE WESTERN AND
SOUTHWESTERN PORTIONS OF CENTRAL ALABAMA...

A light mixture of rain, freezing rain, and ice pellets are possible
on Sunday, mainly between 6 am and 6 pm. A very cold air mass will
be in place across the western and southwestern portions of
central Alabama Saturday night. Temperatures are forecast to fall
into the upper 20s to lower 30s Sunday morning. Light precipitation
will likely move into west Alabama shortly after sunrise Sunday.
The mixture of wintry precipitation will last through the morning
hours, and taper off from north to south during the afternoon. A
winter weather advisory may be necessary once the event draws
closer.

The main concern is the potential for freezing rain. Even though
amounts are forecast to be light, any accumulation of ice on roadways
can be hazardous. Slick spots could develop on elevated surfaces,
like bridges and overpasses.

Stay weather aware through the weekend and monitor the latest
forecast and road conditions.
