Southern winter storm on the way

Christopher Nunley

Firsthand Weather continues to monitor the potential for a winter storm late Friday into Saturday for parts of the South. The winter storm will bring a late-season chance for snow from Texas & Oklahoma east into Arkansas, northern Louisiana, northern & central Mississippi, northern Alabama, northern Georgia, Tennesee, and western North Carolina. Enough snow is possible to allow for light to potentially moderate accumulations for some of the aforementioned areas.

The favored areas to see light to moderate accumulations exist for western Arkansas, northern Mississippi, far northern Alabama, far northern Georgia, central Tennesee & the higher terrain of far eastern Tennesee, and the higher terrain of far western North Carolina. Some minor travel impacts are possible from the snow.
