Winter Storm Watch Issued for Monday Night

| 2:50 pm February 8, 2014

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a Winter Storm Watch for some of our northern counties for Monday night into Tuesday morning. The counties in blue are under this watch. They include Marion, Lamar, Fayette, Winston, Walker, Blount, Etowah, and Cherokee. At this time, the watch does not include Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, or Anniston.

This watch is valid from 6 PM Monday February 10th until noon Tuesday February 11th. There is no winter weather expected the rest of this weekend. The rest of the weekend will have mild afternoons and terrific weather. Clouds should begin to move back into the area late Sunday and rain should return during the day Monday. Monday night, as moisture increases and colder weather moves in, there will be a chance for wintry precip. There is still plenty of time to watch this and make preparations.
