Episode Narrative A surface low in the northern Gulf of Mexico along with an upper level disturbance moving southeastward from the Great Plains contributed to heavy snowfall on Christmas Day in Alabama, resulting in the first White Christmas for much of the area. Precipitation began during the early morning hours in northwest Central Alabama and spread eastward through the day. Many locations saw precipitation begin as rain and change over to snow. In some places, this change over was brief. In others, warm ground conditions caused snowfall to melt on contact, preventing significant accumulation. Snowfall totals ranged from a trace as far south as Troy to 4.00 inches in several locations across north Central Alabama. In many locations, snowfall up to 1.5 inches accumulated on grassy surfaces, not causing any inconvenience to travel or threat to life or property.
Event Narrative An average snowfall accumulation of 1.5 inches occurred across the county with isolated higher amounts, including in the higher elevations of the northern portion of the county where 2.0 inches accumulated.
