Though parts of Alabama should see snow, central Alabama is not likely to be among them, according to Aaron Gleason with the National Weather Service office in Calera.

Gleason said most of the snow forecast for Tuesday night will fall north of Interstate 20.

Even areas with the most snowfall would likely only see accumulation of a quarter-inch to a half-inch, Gleason said.

In Chilton County, a rain/snow mix could fall between 6-9 a.m.

The low temperature overnight should be in the mid-30s, Gleason said, with Wednesday’s high in the low- to mid-40s.

A chance of flurries will be present for most of the day Wednesday, Gleason said.

Temperatures the rest of the week will vary.

“If there was one word to describe the weather the next week, it would be ‘variable,'” Gleason said.

High temperatures will climb close to 50 degrees on Thursday but then fall back into the lower 40s on Friday.

After a slight chance of precipitation on Friday, Central Alabama should see a dry weekend, Gleason said.
