Here is something you don’t hear every December…winter weather chances for Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.  That will actually be the forecast for Thursday and Friday with the potential for up to 1 inch of snowfall.

Winter Weather Alerts

Winter weather advisories are in effect from Thursday night until late Friday morning for parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.  These advisories mean that periods of snow will likely cause travel difficulties.  Slick roads and low visibility will be the primary weather threats.

Winter Weather Forecast

The latest timing for the changeover from rain to snow will be just before midnight Thursday night and most of the precipitation should be snow by sunrise Friday.  Based on this timing the snowfall accumulation will not be high, but it won’t take much to create travel headaches.

Snowfall Forecast

Here is the latest snowfall forecast for the Southeast.  The highest snowfall should be around Atlanta with 1-2″ in the forecast with lower totals in the forecast as you head southwest.
