Say a prayer for us......
Daily Weather Story: The big news other than our new baby son is the southern snowstorm. Dallas has received it's greatest one-day snowfall in recorded history as more than 9" has fallen in the Metroplex. Areas like south Mississippi, southern Louisiana, and south Alabama will see major accumulations on Friday. Snow will even accumulate in the panhandle of Florida.
- All 50 states have some sort of snow on the ground as of today.
- Montgomery, Alabama's greatest snowfall ever occurred March 13, 1993 with 3.8". This record will probably fall on Friday.
- Dallas, Oklahoma City, Philly, Baltimore, and DC are just a few cities that have set some snowfall records this season.
WEEKEND FORECAST: Snow is in the forecast over the next few days. I think it'll be possible through Monday or even Tuesday. Expect temperatures to remain cold throughout the period. Daytime highs will not climb out of the 30's through Sunday and will be even colder on President's Day as a reinforcing shot of Arctic air is pushed into Middle Tennessee. Look for our best chance for accumulating snow to be on Sunday. Up to 3" is possible across the Upper Cumberland.
