Episode Narrative A low pressure system formed off the Texas coast in the Gulf of Mexico during the overnight hours of Tuesday, February 8th. This surface low tracked eastward along the coast during the morning of Wednesday, February 9th, dragging moisture northward from the Gulf of Mexico and pulling cold air in from the north. The combination of the moisture and cold air brought snowfall to much of Central Alabama. The first report of snow was in Hamilton in Marion county beginning around 4 pm. As the precipitation moved through the state, many areas started out as light rain due to temperatures warming to around 50 degrees during the afternoon, especially across the southern counties of Central Alabama, but the cold air was not far behind. Snowfall totals ranged from 4 inches in Lamar county to Trace amounts along the Interstate 85 corridor. Cold temperatures overnight resulted in icy and slick travel conditions through the overnight hours.
Event Narrative Snowfall totals averaged 4.1 inches across the county.
