Light snow is on the way

Tuesday Weather: Very Cold Day

Weather Journal: Persistent cold pattern greets Christmas season

The next few days should be the coldest stretch many of us have seen so far this season. Morning lows Wednesday plummet to the lower 20s. Temperatures will fall to the low 20s just before sunrise Friday.

A second cold front will bring a chance for rain and snow showers early next week. Gusty northwest winds make highs mainly in the upper 30s feel even worse.

Temperatures are in the low to mid 40s over much of Alabama this afternoon, but places like Alexander City and Auburn are only in the upper 30s with a very cold rain falling. Look for the clouds to dissipate over most of the area Thursday night.

It'll be a cold one Friday with highs in the 40s. Now, that much colder air we have been talking about for some time is building in across the region.

Less than an inch of snow is likely Saturday.

Light snow will develop Saturday morning. As that front looks to be fairly far off the coast, most of the moisture should stay out over the ocean as well.

Recent research shows, however, that saturated fat may be more benign than we think. Allen Stewart of Mount Sinai Medical Center's Ichan School of Medicine clarified.

Quick-moving disturbances will bring a slight chance for a few flurries late Friday night or early Saturday morning, and maybe another chance late Monday or Tuesday.

Thursday will be another cold day as temperatures struggle to reach 40 degrees under cloudy sky in Lubbock and northerly wind speeds become gusty by afternoon.

As with any snow potential in the South, keep alert for forecast changes, and be prepared for impacts, even if they seem minor now. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies, brisk breezes, and colder temperatures to be the rule through the rest of the weekend.

It's a brisk morning with temperatures in the low 30s and upper 20s.

A clipper will sweep by to the northeast on Wednesday. For many communities, the precipitation will begin as a mix of rain and snow.
