Wintry weather for part of the area Friday


According to the chart, there's a 53 percent chance of greater than.1 inch of snow.

Wednesday: A 30 percent chance of snow, high near 32. We are going to see temperatures moderate some early in the week, but our next cold front looks to bring our next shot of much colder air into the state by midweek. "Most areas will only see flurries with little if any accumulation". Temperatures through the day will hover around 35 degrees.

"In a nutshell, the greatest risk for some accumulating snow will be across portions of eastern MA and RI, but impacts further into the interior cannot be ruled out", weather service forecasters wrote.

The advisory runs from 9:00pm tonight through noon tomorrow.

Bogalusa City Schools announced Thursday that classes will be canceled Friday because of the wintry mix that is forecast to begin late in the evening and into the morning.

We've had a few reports of sleet Thursday afternoon, but it has been mainly rain so far in the forecast. However, temperatures will go back below freezing rather quickly tomorrow night, and any lingering water on roads could freeze. This could cause issues with black ice if there is standing moisture on the roads.

REMEMBER: With nearly every winter weather event in Alabama, there is a surprise or two. Most of the rain has remained south of I-20 with temperatures in the 40s.

In the meantime, expect mostly clear skies Thursday, with a high near 46 degrees, it said.
