...for Central Alabama tonight...very interesting setup in the Gulf region with a low pressure system and cold air coming down will make for a big snow event for the Central Alabama folks. They rarely see snow in that part of the country...it would be great, for us, if that system would track about 200 miles northward! Big discussions going on at AlabamaWX.com...they are the blog site of the TV station ABC 33/40 in Birmingham...James Spann and his crew do an unbelievable job with keeping their viewers informed via the web with video and multiple posts daily....

This date in history....
On January 18, 1994...A record cold air mass pushes into the mid state. The high temperature reaches just 10 degrees at Nashville. The plateau is especially hard-hit, as Crossville checks in with a low of -8.
