Deep South Snow Expected Friday from Parts of Louisiana to North Carolina

Share

If the cold air makes it farther south, we'll have more snow in more places.

Why? Forecasters said a mix of rain and sleet could begin late Thursday evening, before becoming snow Friday morning.

By Friday night, some patchy areas of light, wet snow are possible from North Carolina and southeast Virginia to the southern Delmarva Peninsula.

Rainfall totals are still forecast to reach 2 to 3 inches across the entire area.

The cold air has arrived in central North Carolina and it is now looking a little more likely that some snow could fall later this week in central North Carolina.

Tomorrow: Chance for snow flurries throughout the morning with a winter weather advisory in effect until noon. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain. There may be a few hours before sunrise Friday where the cold air and moisture overlap to produce light snow showers, especially south of I-10. This will cause a gradual transition of ongoing rain to snow.

Bayonetta 3 In Development For Switch: 1
The game's mere existence was a surprise, so the release date being just a couple of months away was the icing on the cake. Meanwhile, the first Bayonetta and its sequel will launch simultaneously for the console on February 26, 2018.

With temperatures above freezing and warm ground temperatures, any daytime accumulations should be confined mainly to grassy areas and vehicle tops, rather than roads.

WDSU meteorologist Kweilyn Murphy said most areas will only see flurries with little if any accumulation; however, a few spots - especially on the northern boundary between Louisiana and MS - could see less than an inch of accumulation on grassy surfaces, rooftops and elevated surfaces, including roadways.

Most likely, there will be a 30- to 40-mile-wide strip of heavier snow, and trying to identify that far in advance is very hard to do.

Take caution while driving as some bridges and overpasses could develop patches of ice overnight while temperatures dip below freezing across the South Plains.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The weather will be dry and cold with mostly sunny days and fair nights; highs will be in the 40s and lows in the 20s. Temperatures in the 60s will return Monday.
