SYNOPSIS...THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH AXIS IS SWINGING OVERHEAD EARLY THIS EVENING. THE SURFACE LOW CONTINUES TO DEEPEN AS IT APPROACHES THE FL COAST NEAR TAMPA BAY. RADAR AND SURFACE OBS INDICATE THAT SNOW IS COMING TO AN END ACROSS SE AL AND INLAND PORTIONS OF THE FL PANHANDLE. THERE WILL BE A FEW MORE HOURS OF SNOW IN OUR GA ZONES. THE RAIN SNOW LINE HAS REMAINED NW OF A BAINBRIDGE TO MOULTRIE LINE. THIS LINE STILL HAS A CHANCE OF WORKING A BIT MORE SEWD NOW THAT THE SURFACE TROUGH HAS MOVED E OF THE AREA. IN FL...WE HAVE RECEIVED MANY REPORTS OF A BRIEF CHANGE-OVER TO SNOW BEFORE THE PRECIPITATION ENDS. PORTIONS OF THE BIG BEND COULD CERTAINLY SEE A BRIEF PERIOD OF SNOW WITH NO ACCUMULATION FORECAST. CONCERNING THE WINTER WEATHER SCENARIO...WE WILL BE CANCELING THE WINTER STORM WARNING FOR OUR SE AL ZONES AND THE ADVISORY IN THE FL PANHANDLE ZONES SHORTLY. FURTHER E...THE ADVISORY WILL REMAIN IN PLACE UNTIL EXPIRATION (02Z) OVER THE GA ZONES. WE HAVE RECEIVED MANY REPORTS OF MEASURABLE SNOW IN THE WARNING AND ADVISORY AREAS WITH THE WINNER THUS FAR 4.0 INCHES MEASURED AT ARITON AL IN DALE COUNTY. ADJACENT HENRY COUNTY HAS ANNOUNCED THAT ALL ROADS IN THE COUNTY ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. WE PLAN TO REISSUE THE SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT TO DISCUSS OUR CONCERNS ABOUT ICY ROADS OVERNIGHT. AREAS THAT HAVE SNOW ON THE GROUND WILL NOT SEE MUCH MELTING BEFORE TEMPS DROP BELOW FREEZING THIS EVENING. FURTHER SE WHERE MAINLY RAIN FELL...ROADS ARE VERY WET AND A QUICK DROP IN TEMPS TO BELOW FREEZING BY AROUND MIDNIGHT COULD RESULT IN PATCHES OF BLACK ICE ON AREA ROADS. WE COULD TECHNICALLY SEE HARD FREEZE CONDITIONS BY SAT MORNING OVER SE AL AND SW GA...BUT DURATIONS ARE MARGINAL AND WE DO NOT PLAN TO ISSUE A WARNING. INSTEAD...WE WILL FOCUS ON THE THREAT FOR SLIPPERY ROADS. ANOTHER CONCERN IS THAT WE MAY FLIRT WITH WIND CHILL ADVISORY CRITERIA OVER SE AL. WILL ADDRESS THAT ISSUE LATER THIS EVENING.
