NJ's weekend snow forecast just got worse; up to 4 inches possible

As of late morning Thursday, the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center says there's a 40-50 percent chance in the Baton Rouge area of seeing at least one inch of snow accumulation from 6 p.m. Thursday through 6 p.m. Friday. A half an inch of snow or less could be possible in northern parts of Monroe county, Jasper county, and parts of Upson.

The National Weather Service in New Orleans has issued a winter weather advisory beginning at 9 p.m. Thursday until 12 p.m. Friday for all counties in South Mississippi.

The winter weather advisory for southwest Alabama will be in effect from 3 a.m. until noon Friday, according to the weather service in Mobile. "But at this point it's looking like the much colder air that would be required to produce anything more than rain won't be getting here until later on Friday, and by then the moisture will have moved out". "Basically, as the sun sets (Friday), we're going to start to see some of that rain change over to snow and probably mix in flakes with the rain and possibly change over to all snow shortly after that".

It will definitely be cold, with a low of 29 degrees.

She said she talked repeatedly to bosses about O'Reilly's actions, but there was no hotline in place at the time of the incidents. A woman who settled with television host Bill O'Reilly is now leveling a new lawsuit against him and Fox News.

The coldest air will not arrive until Friday night into Saturday morning prompting a concern for the residual water freezing causing "black ice".

On Thursday, forecasters said the best chance for the most snow was along the Interstate 85 corridor from Alabama through Atlanta and into SC.

The high will be in the low 60s on the weekend and temperatures will range from the mid-50s to the lower 60s Monday through Wednesday, the NWS says.

Below freezing air from the north and moisture coming in from the southwest tonight will lead to a good setup to see rain change over into snow after midnight. "A lot of people call it the polar vortex".
