Another storm will move across the deep south. It will contain a mix bag of precipitation with rain, ice, and snow in the forecast. It will move south this evening affecting Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.
A look at HPC graphical forecasts.
By Tuesday morning, much of the deep south will be canvased with precipitation. Southern Arkansas will have an average of 2 inches of snowfall. Southern Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama to Georgia will have rain and thunderstorms.
By Wednesday morning, the storm will move east still affecting Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. Turning over to snow for much of these areas.
The storm will take a turn to the north and affect the mid-Atlantic states in the middle of this week where some areas through the eastern part of West Virginia, the western half of Virginia, Maryland and the southern half of New Jersey could potentially see half a foot of snow. Much of these areas are under a Winter Storm Watch for Thursday.

And by Wednesday night, the system is still planted in the south
Through the latter half of the week, it’ll move along the eastern seaboard. Rain along the coast, with snow/sleet further inland about 50 miles.
The storm that will move across the southeast will help areas like southern Texas and Louisiana that are in need rain.
The Drought Monitor that was posted last Thursday still shows isolated areas like southern Alabama and isolated pockets across the coasts of North and south Carolina still are ‘abnormally dry.’
Closer to home. We will have a chance for light snow early Wednesday morning and then we are in for a warm-up! Much of the snow will melt off, however we still run the risk of refreezing during the overnight hours.
Have a good Monday afternoon,
