March 12, 1993: A Blown Forecast?

| March 12, 2018 @ 1:59 pm

On the afternoon of Friday, March 12, 1993, forecasts still were calling for a significant snowstorm across parts of Central Alabama. After some insignificant snow during the morning, the sun even came out for awhile, and temperatures warmed enough for there to be just a mix of sleet and light rain around lunchtime across parts of the area.

Many people thought that the forecast had been blown. So the National Weather Service in Birmingham put out this Special Weather Statement alerting people not to let their guard down.

The rain began changing to snow late in the afternoon and by early evening, that significant snowstorm was underway.

We are sharing our memories today of the storm here on AlabamaWX. Be sure to read and watch them!
