WINTER WEATHER THIS TUESDAY

futurecastWeather Summary:

We are officially on snow patrol! A strong push of arctic air will plow into the area Monday evening. Out ahead of that arctic air there will be run of the mill rain showers, but once that cold air is in place Tuesday we are setting up for quite a different scenario.

MOISTURE MOVES IN

Moisture from an upper-level disturbance will start spreading wintry weather across Texas early Tuesday morning. That moisture will move quickly eastward spreading sleet, freezing rain, and snow flurries along the Gulf Coast.

It’s likely we’ll see this all start out as a cold rain early Tuesday afternoon. As temps drop some of that rain should change over to sleet and possibly even freezing rain (the worst of winter weather). As we move into the evening hours many areas will see the precipitation completely change over to snow flurries with 1”-2” accumulations probable and even higher amounts in a few spotty areas. The last few flurries should wrap up Wednesday morning with melting occurring by the afternoon.

TRAVEL CONDITIONS DETERIORATE

As the weather picks up Tuesday travel will likely become treacherous. The biggest worry is icing on overpasses and bridges. Remember local municipalities are not equipped to deal with ANY kind of winter weather and all-season tires that nearly all of us drive on are fine for rain, but not for ice. Stayed tuned to FOX10 News we will definitely be keeping an eye out on the conditions and letting you know if it becomes unsafe.

THE REAL DEAL

Often winter weather events are marginal at best here on the Gulf Coast and many times they simply don’t pan out. This time though there’s a lot of agreement in the models and confidence is high that we will see a significant event.

    Can you find out if the Univesity of South Alabama will be closed tomorrow, please? I know they probably will be, since the public schools are, and the University of Mobile is closed tomorrow and Wednesday as well. But I couldn’t find it on their website. Thanks!

    Although this intensive program proved helpful
    for those not receiving Contrave, those that did consider
    the drug lost more weight. Anyone who’s lost a large amount of weight should
    be able to tell you what a large ordeal the full process may be at times.

    But, this really should not be a cause of you to get
    afraid of pills and medications intended for slimming
    down. Again, you’ve to consider everything, surgery, medication,
    v3 diet, exercise, all those factors receive play.
