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.
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.
Nearly 100,000 customers were without power across Alabama early Tuesday after storms with the force of hurricane winds toppled trees and utility lines.
Alabama Power said early Tuesday morning that 98,200 customers were without power as of 6 a.m., down from more than 222,000 customers after the Monday storms.
Most of the customers who remained without power -- about 50,000 -- were east of Birmingham in communities such as Gadsden, Oneonta, Anniston and Pell City. Dozens of communities around the state experienced significant damage, authorities said.
Strong storms are expected across much of Alabama, bringing the potential for hail and high winds as a cold front passes through the state.
The National Weather Service warns that the strongest storms will capable of producing wind gusts up to 60 mph and hail the size of quarters.
More than a dozen counties on Monday were covered by a severe thunderstorm watch, which is scheduled to be in effect until 3 p.m. Monday. It includes the cities of Athens, Huntsville, Florence, Hamilton and Jasper.
Forecasters say clashing weather systems are creating a chance for severe weather in Alabama.
The National Weather Service says severe storms with damaging winds, heavy rains and isolated tornadoes are possible Tuesday night into Wednesday.
The problem is an advancing cold front that's moving toward Alabama from the west. Forecasters say strong storms could develop as the cooler air meets with warm, moist flowing northward from the Gulf of Mexico.
