in Winter

Southeast Snow Forecast

Firsthand Weather is still eyeing the potential for wintry weather for parts of the Southeast late-Monday.

A strong cold front will move through the Southeast on Monday. Behind the cold front, significantly colder air will filter into the area. Enough moisture may remain in place late-Monday for the cold air to allow for a brief changeover to snow across parts of Tennessee, northern Mississippi, northern Alabama, northern Georgia, and western North Carolina.

The window will be small, but there is growing confidence that the higher elevations of Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina may see light snow accumulations. Light flurries may make it as far south as Birmingham and Atlanta, however, no accumulations are expected. The accumulations would be confined to higher elevation farther north.

Preliminary snow forecast

There are still questions if enough moisture will remain in place for a transition to snow. The highest confidence for snow is the higher elevation across eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina. This forecast is likely to change over the coming days so keep checking back for updates.
