Firsthand Weather first brought you the possibility of snow for parts of the South and Southeast a few days ago, and the chances of snow have continued to increase. A quick-hitting band of sleet and snow will develop early Sunday morning over eastern Texas and advance into northern and central Louisiana, southern and eastern Arkansas by late morning into the early afternoon hours before moving into central and northern Mississippi, Tennessee, central and northern Alabama, and northern Georgia Sunday evening, and into far Upstate South Carolina, and parts of North Carolina overnight Sunday into Monday morning.

It should be noted, it appears the precipitation over eastern Texas, parts of Louisiana, and parts of Arkansas will be mainly a sleet mixture with a few flakes, but other areas have a good chance to see wet snow. Despite the warm temperatures, pockets of moderate snow could allow for some accumulations across the aforementioned areas of Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina late Sunday. Any accumulations would be light and on elevated surfaces but right now, it appears up to one inch is possible with isolated higher amounts above 2,000 feet where a couple of inches could fall.
Keep in mind, the snow could accumulate briefly when falling within the moderate pockets, but then would most likely quickly melt due to temperatures at the surface being near or just above freezing. Please keep in mind, the model above is to give an idea of where the favored areas are to see snow. This model is likely overestimating the accumulations due to several variables. So keep in mind, a dusting to an inch is most likely with slightly more above 2,000 feet or the favored upslope areas.
