Wintry weather for part of the area Friday

Wintry weather for part of the area Friday

You can see what the probability is of snow in your area - or anywhere else - by how much snow will probably fall. We could see a flew slick spots develop - especially in higher terrain and elevated roadways.

A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect for the Florida parishes in southeast Louisiana and most counties in southern Mississippi.

- The winter weather advisory includes Pointe Coupee, West Feliciana, East Feliciana, St. Helena, St. Tammany, Iberville, West Baton Rouge, East Baton Rouge, Ascension, Livingston and Tangipahoa parishes. "We could start to see ... a rain-to-snow transition". Snow showers, if they occur, should end before noon.

"Light snow is expected to accumulate up to a few inches late Friday night through Saturday", the weather service said in a hazardous weather outlook issued at about 3:50 p.m. Thursday. Once again though, we expect this to be a very low-impact event travel-wise for all parts of the viewing area, as the ground is just too warm and surface temperatures are too border-line to support any significant accumulations. This means widespread issues on roads shouldn't occur.

Some Alabama schools are announcing closures and delays ahead of the possibility of snow Friday.

The Baton Rouge area is expected to get a dose of winter weather on Friday morning.

Any school delays or closings will be listed below. And some, like the West Milford area of Passaic County, get their first real taste of snow by December 3.

Officials are warning that a winter storm could soon bring snow and a wintry mix of precipitation to a large section of the Deep South.
