Heavy snow band setting up over parts of the Southeast, Tennessee Valley, and the southern Appalachians

A heavy band of snow is setting up across parts of the Southeast, Tennessee Valley, and the southern Appalachians tonight. This band of snow band will slowly move from west to east across the aforementioned areas over the next several hours. A several-hour period of snow rates of half an inch to three-quarters of an inch is possible for this area with rates, at times, in excess of an inch per hour. This could lead to locally heavy, significant snow accumulations for the higher elevations. Join the Firsthand Weather Supporter Group.

Recent hi-res guidance suggests some areas in this circled pink area above could see 3-5 inches of snow with locally higher amounts. This includes northern Alabama, southern and eastern Tennesee, and northwestern Georgia.
