Snow Likely Tuesday for Central Alabama

A winter storm could bring more than 2 inches of snow and sleet to parts of central Alabama early this week.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for much of central and southern Alabama starting Tuesday morning. Forecasters say areas likely to see the most accumulation are those south of Interstate 85 and U.S. 80.

The Weather Service says more than 2 inches of snow and sleet are possible in cities including Montgomery, Auburn, Tuskegee and Selma. The heaviest snowfall is expected from noon Tuesday to 3 a.m. Wednesday.

A mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow is also possible in Mobile and other areas on the Gulf Coast. Forecasters say accumulations could cause dangerous driving conditions and widespread power outages.
