Wintry weather on Tuesday descending on counties in the northern reaches of the FOX10 News viewing area and beyond.
Just after 7 a.m., snow was seen falling in Clarke County, Alabama. The Clarke County Emergency Management Agency posted video on Facebook showing snow falling.
Clarke County schools were among the region's schools closed Tuesday because of the wintry weather. In southwest Alabama, those closed schools also included Washington County schools, Conecuh County schools, all Monroe County schools and all coastal Alabama community college campuses.
An arctic airmass will chill the area for next couple of days, with temperatures expected to plunge overnight Tuesday into the freezing zone.
Forecasters predicted that as the cold air moved in rain could change over to flurries in the hours leading to 9 a.m. Tuesday -- mostly in inland locations such as Greene, Washington and Clarke counties. Very little accumulation is be expected, if any, said FOX10 meteorologist Michael White.
For Mobile and Baldwin counties, White said we can expect a few flurries north of I-10 mixed in with rain, but nothing that would stick to the ground. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 40s this afternoon.
