NWS: Winter Storm Watch Thursday Evening, Freezing Rain Likely Overnight

Stay with the 4WARN Weather team throughout the day as we track this winter storm.

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a regionwide winter storm watch, in effect Thursday evening.

Total snow accumulations of up to one-half inch, with ice accumulations up to a light glaze, are expected, the weather service said. The rain to ice change happens from 11 AM to 1 PM from Fayetteville and Huntsville to Decatur and Moulton, then from 1 PM to 3 PM over Sand Mountain around Scottsboro, Fort Payne, Guntersville, and Boaz.

And snow was being reported in the sharply colder air behind it.

As temperatures drop on Friday, rain will transition to a freezing rain/sleet/snow mix before changing to all snow later in the day.

Winter weather warnings and advisories were in place Friday all the way from northern MS to northern Maine.

The National Weather Service predicts that freezing temperatures will last through Sunday.

EAST AR: More sleet and ice than snow.
