Up to 2 inches of snow possible in parts of AL

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Forecasters say the first snow of the season is possible Monday afternoon and Monday night in several parts of Alabama.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a winter weather advisory for much of central and northern Alabama, including the cities of Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Gadsden, Hamilton, Jasper and Anniston.

The advisory, which stretches from the west edge of the state to the Alabama-Georgia line, will be in effect from Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning.

A mix of rain and snow is possible beginning Monday afternoon. Forecasters say rain will change over to snow during the night, and accumulations of up to two inches are possible in some spots.

The weather service says the greatest accumulations are expected to be in the northwest part of central Alabama.
