Winter Storm Watches are up for most of northern and central Mississippi and north and central Alabama this morning for the upcoming storm system later Wednesday into Wednesday night.

This system is a tough one in that it will be weakening as it heads from the southern Plains into the Southeast. At this point, I really don't have a good feeling about this producing significant snows in the non-mountain areas of the Carolinas...and the snow chances are actually much higher off to the west, in the areas under a winter storm watch. It needs to be watched though, and the RPM (Stormcast) is certainly aggressive in bringing the snow into the Carolinas......but it is tough to find much other model support for it.

So, at this point, for snow fans outside the mountains, I wouldn't be too excited....but the potential is there for a little snow, if this system can dampen out a bit more slowly.

I have not had the chance to do the normal amount of analysis I would normally do, so I was hesitant to even put anything up this morning. So, take caution! But I will be back in full swing tomorrow morning, and we will definitely see how things look then.

A big warm-up is on the way by later this weekend into next week......60s for highs maybe as soon as Sunday.

Thanks Matthew for the update, and welcome back. I am actually looking forward to warmer weather. I'm not counting on much in the way of snow the rest of the way, so might as well be warm.

Thanks! I think lots of folks are itching for warmer weather...
