No Travel Issues With Flurries

They are nice to look at on this early Monday morning. However, the snow flurries (or snow showers) in progress mainly over the north third of Alabama should cause no problems to travel for these three main reasons:

1. They pass too quickly like a summer shower.
2. They are not heavy enough (or long-lasting enough)
3, The air temperature and especially the ground temperature not cold enough.

The 33/40 Skycam for Cullman was showing some whitened roofs in the last hour but very little on the ground. It was 35 degrees with west wind gusting to 31 mph.

Most of the flurries were over the north third of the state. Best chance of the ground turning white will be over the higher terrain of NE Alabama.

Just got a report from a motorist that had completed a Gadsden to Birmingham drive with no flurries seen.

FOR TODAY: Blustry and cold with intermittent snow flurries or snow showers. No travel problems. Westerly winds 15-25 mph, occasionally gusting over 30–the ingredients for an uncomfortable day.
