HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A Winter Weather Advisory continues tonight for NW Alabama.  There remains an outside chance for some minor ice accumulation on trees and power lines in these areas. 

Elsewhere, flooding is the main threat tonight.  Many streams, creeks and rivers are bank full and there are numerous flood warnings in effect at this time.  An additional inch of rain is possible tonight before the rain finally tapers off by the Noon hour on Wednesday.

Temperatures will drop into the middle 30s overnight with scattered showers.   Highs will return to the 40s on Wednesday and Thursday. 

Late Thursday morning a cold upper level storm system will move in from the West.  This will create light rain showers that will likely change over to some light to moderate snow during the late morning and early afternoon hours.  Temperatures will drop into the middle 30s while the snow falls.

Due to recent warming, the ground temperatures will remain too warm for any travel problems during the day.  It is possible some areas could see a 1 to 2 inch accumulation - mainly on grassy areas, cars and other structures.  Most of the roads will remain problem free until overnight Thursday into Friday morning. 

Temperatures will likely drop into the upper 20s early Friday morning.  This could lead to some areas of Black Ice early Friday morning.  This is a developing weather situation, and we are monitoring it closely.

Friday afternoon, the sunshine will return and highs will reach the lower 50s.  Most of the roads will be dry by Friday night before temperatures drop close to freezing once again.

Sunny this weekend but another cold front will move in Sunday.  No rain or snow is expected with this front but it will turn much colder behind it early next week.
