Monday's snow totals ranged anywhere from just a trace up to around two inches in some spots of Franklin County, AL and Lincoln County, TN. We did see melting throughout the second half of the day yesterday and even into the overnight hours.

Temperatures this morning, thankfully, only managed a degree or two below the freezing mark.  Soil temperatures are in the mid 30s to low 40s making it difficult for black ice to form for most Tuesday.  

Once low clouds clear later this morning we're in for a mostly sunny skies Tuesday afternoon and highs will be warmer as a result. It'll be slightly below average, but about ten degrees warmer than Monday as we climb to the upper 40s.

Today's afternoon sunshine will also help to evaporate lingering moisture before North Alabama drops to the mid 20s Wednesday morning.

Quiet and milder afternoons continue through Thursday. The next cold front swings in on Friday. It brings a drop in temperatures, but not much in the way of precipitation. By the weekend, highs are only in the 40s again.
