Episode Narrative Narrow bands of snow showers and flurries redeveloped after midnight of the 26th as a strong upper upper level low dropped southeast through the Tennessee Valley. Most of the snowfall remained light, but periodic bursts of moderate to snow were reported which reduced visibility to around 3/4 mile, but in most cases ranged from 2-5 miles. New snowfall accumulations ranged from a little over a dusting up to one inch.
New daily record snowfall totals were set at Huntsville (0.3 inches) and Muscle Shoals (1.0 inches).
Already slick road conditions due to re-freezing of wet roads from the previous day's snowfall became even more slick, especially during the morning hours. Temperatures struggled to reach 30 degrees, with higher elevations even colder. Some sunshine broke through for a period during the afternoon between intermittent snow showers and flurries. This melted the snow on roadways, but also produced wet roads which would re-freeze into icy patches again during the evening and nighttime of the 26th.
Event Narrative Snowfall of up to 0.6 inches was reported.
