FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Dense fog advisory Thursday; First Alert Weather Day Friday

(WAFF) -

A First Alert Weather Day is in effect for Friday for the potential of up to 1" of snow across much of North Alabama and southern Tennessee.

We’ll start Thursday morning under a dense fog advisory. Pockets of thick fog will reduce visibility to less than a quarter-mile, especially through the higher elevations where low clouds will be more prominent. Temperatures are above freezing this morning, meaning that although the roads could still be wet, no icy spots are expected. Skies will stay cloudy today and highs should make it into mid 40s.

The next big weather-maker will continue to develop out to our west Thursday. As low pressure strengthens, rain showers will develop across the Valley, mainly during the afternoon. You can expect moderate to heavy rain over the course of Thursday evening, with many of you seeing around 1-2” of rain.

Friday morning will start out in the 40s, but that’s when the high will occur. Be sure to look for falling afternoon temperatures as the low passes to our east.  As the cool air arrives, we are expecting rain to transition to snow.

At this time is looks like the rain will change to snow between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Shoals; 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Huntsville Metro area; and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in areas of northeast Alabama.

Be sure to stay tuned to WAFF for the latest closings, delays and early dismissals, which you can also find on our News app. Be sure to text 'apps' to 4-48-48 for directions on how to download the free app.
