It has been a day in the South! Likely multiple long-track, large tornadoes tracked (& are still tracking) across Louisiana, Mississippi to Alabama.
Snow continues to move northeastward in the area.
We have snow & a new dusting here at WLFI.
This area of snow will pass through tonight, but be out of here by 7 a.m. Tuesday.
Progression of the snow overnight:
Highest totals will be in the deep south part of the viewing area. Only trace amounts will fall in the north.
Much of the viewing area will see 1" or less.
Northeast to north winds may gust 25-35 mph, leading to some blowing & drifting on east-west roadways.
After clearing Tuesday with highs 32-36 (wind chills in the 20s) with winds turning to the west to northwest at 12-25 mph (after near 24 in the morning with wind chills to 9), it will cloud up tomorrow night. Some nice melting will take place Tuesday.
Winds will pick up from the west-southwest with some snow showers & flurries as a cold front & short wave pivot through.
Localized dustings are possible.
Lows will tank to 15-20 by Wednesday morning with wind chills to near 0 with north winds gusting to 30 mph.
Skies will clear Wednesday with highs 20-25 with gusty west-northwest winds to 33 mph at times. Wind chills will run single digits to around 10.
So, despite sunshine, it will be a cold day!
With clear skies & winds going light, lows may tank to single digits (or even 0) Wednesday night.
Thursday looks mostly sunny & rather breezy from the southeast, then south-southeast at 15-25 mph with highs 33-38.
It should be a nice thawing day.
Friday-Sunday feature highs in the 40s with skies gradually becoming mostly cloudy to cloudy with strong southwest winds. A few showers are possible, most likely Sunday PM (at this point).
These may end as a few snow showers Sunday night.-Monday morning.
Monday looks colder with highs in the 30s.
