Winter Storm May Bring Snow, Sleet to Areas of North Alabama

UNDATED, Ala. (AP) - Snow is in Alabama's weekend forecast. Some parts of the state may see snow or a wintry mix of precipitation as early as Friday night.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for counties in the Tennessee Valley region, and for areas in north central and north east Alabama.

The watch is in effect from this evening through Saturday morning.

Remember, a winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

Residents should stay abreast of changing weather conditions through your favorite media source.
