Friday, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 27, the weather service said.

Northwest winds 25 to 30 miles per hour with gusts 40 to 45 miles per hour will cause blowing snow.Cold wind chills as low as 15 below zero will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin.

The bottom line: Northwest Alabama (The Shoals, Moulton Russellville), Limestone County, northeast into Tennessee have the best chance of snowfall of around 1 to 3 inches.

Thursday Night: Showers likely. The precipitation is expected to change to all snow by Thursday morning. Wind chill values as low as -9. The region, which has been nearly completely dry this winter, was expected to get as much as 4 inches of rain by early Tuesday.

Sunday should be mostly sunny with a high near 36 degrees, the National Weather Service reports.
