Forecasters are predicting a mixture of rain, snow and sleet across parts of northern Alabama Tuesday before the precipitation changes to all snow late Tuesday night.
The National Weather Service predicts less than a half-inch of new snow and sleet accumulation in cities such as Huntsville and Florence. Higher amounts will be possible at higher elevations of northeast Alabama, such as areas near Lookout Mountain.
Forecasters say that some icy and slick spots on roads will develop, especially on bridges, overpasses and less-traveled secondary roads.
It was brutally cold over night in parts of Alabama, and forecasters say it's not over yet. Tonight's forecast is for more cold weather for the Tennessee Valley, with temperatures dropping to the mid-twenties again.
Tuscaloosa is predicted to have upper twenties, and Mobile could be in the mid thirties.
Meteorologist Holly Allen says precautions for tonight are the same as for last night.
Heavy rains flooded roads and highways in parts of Alabama, and one county was under a flash flood warning.
The National Weather Service early Wednesday issued a flash flood warning for Cullman County, where an emergency manager reported more than a foot of water covering Highway 69 in front of a truck stop. Forecasters said heavy thunderstorms were expected to produce even more rain in the area.
Strong thunderstorms caused downpours that resulted in flash flooding in parts of Alabama.
The weather service didn't report any severe weather associated with the storms on Tuesday, but the downpours created headaches for some.
Streets flooded in parts of Jefferson County and Birmingham, causing traffic tie-ups. The weather service said flash flooding was likely near Montgomery, with deluges of as much as 2 inches of rain possible in a short time.
Heavy rains have prompted the National Weather Service to issue flash flood warnings for several Alabama counties.
Huntsville forecasters placed northwest Madison County under a flood warning Thursday until 6 p.m. CDT. A warning was also in effect until 5:15 p.m. for central Morgan County, southeast Limestone County, southeast Lawrence and northwest Cullman County.
Meteorologist Jennifer Schuller says the weather service received many phone calls from people reporting heavy rain and roads blocked by flooding in north Alabama.
Wind damage was reported after a severe weather system moved across Alabama Friday morning.
However, forecasters said the chances for tornadoes appeared to be diminishing.
A hazardous weather advisory said the storms could produce isolated damaging winds as the system moved from Alabama to Georgia Friday afternoon, and there was "a very small chance" for an isolated tornado.
A crew from the National Weather Service plans to inspect storm damage in southwestern Alabama to determine whether damage to homes in the area was caused for a tornado or high winds.
Preliminary reports from the weather service indicate that homes were damaged near the small community of St. Stephens, a few miles outside Jackson. Survey crews were planning to assess the damage on Monday.
Forecasters say more than 4 inches of rain has fallen in parts of the Alabama -- and the totals are continuing to climb.
