    Wonder if it'll be heavy enough to cause any road issues? I imagine it should start sticking pretty quickly

    It might but the wind is blowing it might just blow right off the road.

    Keep track of that second one too. It's the only think keeping moisture coming into the atmosphere in AL. It's got some spin to it.

    What’s left of the deform band is moving in here. Light snow currently.

    There appears to be some development W of Birmingham on radar now. If it's cold enough, may get a few flakes there if it makes it.

    Hunting in Arkansas this morning had 1” of snow on top of a layer of freezing rain. Roads were bad at 630. Driving back to N AL now. Roads in E Ark have improved hope they are ok in N MS

    I assume you’re referring to that closed countour ‘twixt Starkville & Columbus?

    It’s trying to stick but it’s coming in bursts.

    Haven’t posted since yesterday but got a good bit of Sleet here in my county with this system. The further North you went into SW TN the more opportunity for Snowfall. Roads have been so so around these parts but I see there’s been a massive pileup around Mile Marker 119 towards Jackson, TN if it hasn’t already been mentioned.

    Thanks! Still waiting on the grandfather of all Winter Storms if it ever happens lol. I think I’m ready for a good Nino winter again.

    Nino's never have dealt the goods here in recent times. I'd rather take winters like this with La Nina's that warm up after a good snow, instead of all cold rain.

    Sun is out. Dark to the west. This is going to be fun to watch.

    Thanks for the web site. I think the GOES is one of the best projects they have done in a long time.

    Finally started snowing about 35 min ago. Accumulating quickly. If this band doesn’t dry up I should do ok.

    It’s accumulating pretty good and temp is steady at 22 degrees. Here’s some before and after pictures when it was just ice at 3:30pm.

    Thinking you'll ^^ do good considering the clenching moments watching the ULL stall.

    Looks like the KY/TN border north of Nashville is getting hit good.
