Episode Narrative A narrow band of heavy snow developed during the late afternoon and early evening hours of the 3rd across portions of north central into northeast Alabama, generally south of the Tennessee River. By mid evening, the snow changed to a mix of sleet and freezing rain which produced a light ice accumulation of a tenth of an inch or less on top of the snow. The snow reduced visibility to 2 miles or less, in some cases to 1/2 mile. Snow amounts of 2 to 5 inches fell in Marshall County, and 1 to 2 inches in portions of Cullman and DeKalb Counties. Lighter amounts of an inch or less fell in southern portions of Franklin, Lawrence, Morgan, Madison and Jackson Counties. By late evening into the overnight hours, temperatures slowly warmed to 32 to 34 degrees in valley areas, helping to improve road conditions.
Event Narrative Three to five inches of snowfall fell across Marshall county. The highest storm total of 4.5 inches occurred 2 miles north of the Hyatt community. On top of this snowfall, a light layer of ice accumulated as a period of freezing rain/sleet occurred. These hazardous conditions prompted the local emergency management officials to declare a state of local emergency due to treacherous traveling conditions.
