Cold front delivers light snow, freezing drizzle, plunging temperatures

After a wintry end to the work/school week, skies cleared out for the first half of the weekend with highs topping out in the upper teens and low 20s. Highs today will be around 20°, and temperatures will fall to the single digits by early tomorrow morning. Winds are light to quiet, so wind chill is not much of a factor for the area. One weather disturbance will spread a few clouds from Missouri and Arkansas but the air remains dry across Alabama which limits the chance for precipitation reaching the surface through tonight. Temperatures past midnight will be cold enough from the clouds to the surface for anything that falls to be snow. The next system slowly enters the region, bringing some snow showers by daybreak. Sunday should be a little warmer, with highs temperatures in the middle to upper 40s. Over a foot of snow fell during the overnight hours in northern Door County, and several more inches are expected throughout the day due to lake enhancement. Light snow tapers to snow showers late Tuesday night before wrapping early Wednesday morning. We will see a nice warming trend heading into next week. 40's and 50's prevail this weekend with rain chances returning to the forecast. Right now it looks like late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but the timing is in question and so is the amount of snow. Wednesday is partly sunny during the afternoon hours.
