I have to wonder just how fast you could get a sled going right now headed downhill on Johnston south from UL main campus...

Just a strong blowing frozen mist in Biloxi. Not snow, not sleet, just a very fine, frozen drizzle.

Yeah, same here. I work up in northern Mobile Co and they're getting it pretty good up there. I get a day off anyway. Just started here about 45 minutes ago so still a couple of hours to go. Not sure I'll wait up though.

Just caught update on fox 10 out of mobile, west bound I10 over the bay way closed, accident and roads and cars are icing up pretty bad with a couple or 3 more hours to go. Could end up being a bad morning on the roads.

Tiny snow flakes for about a minute, then back to strong frizzle. Going to need a 5 gallon bucket of hot water for the windshield tommorrow. There's already a 1/4 inch of ice on it.

I have about a tenth of an inc if ice on my deck from freezing rain. Brrr. Glad to see you went to snow in Biloxi. Hopefully we get a little before it moves on out.

What a snowy night/early morning for the people either onor along the corridor of Interstate 65 from Mobile to Montgomery AL. Radar showing moderate to heavy snow at times all along that corridor. Also U.S. Hwy 231 from Montgomery to Ozark , AL looks like tough tough driving conditions this early morning with the snow..Also along Interstate 85 from Montgomery to Atlanta, snowy ride early this morning.

There is a quite a band of snow, about 100 miles in width, along and just behind the arctic front extending southwest to northeast from the Mississippi Gulf Coast, to the Piedmont of North Carolina early this morning. This has turned out to be an impressive event for much of the Deep South. This is the third significant winter weather event for the Deep South this season. Impressive!


The area of snow is moving east, while the coldest and drier air from the north is rapidly sinking in to erode the precip shield from the northwest. Areas of Central and South Georgia, along with the remainder of the Florida Panhandle region should see some light snow before the precip moves out of the region by noon today.

EDIT

Looks like the back edge of the precip area has just passed through Mobile, AL observing radar, and at 3 a.m. CST, the snow has come to an end in Mobile.

Second snow of the season for metro ATL. Much less accumulations than last time but still means no work today :wink:

Wind chill outside is in the negatives right now.

It's a sunny 22 in Lafayette with the ice beginning to melt. I'm getting ready to brave the roads and head into work.

Johnston Street this morning:

I didn't walk all the way to campus, but I'm sure you could have a nice luge or skeleton competition on the long slope leading down toward Cajundome Blvd... I'll have to check Youtube later to see if any enterprising UL students did just that...
