A Winter Storm Watch is in effect from late Monday night through Tuesday morning for a large chunk of the Tennessee Valley.

The National Weather Service in Huntsville issued the watch Sunday afternoon. A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

WAAY 31 Meteorologist Chris Smith said this may be upgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory as we get within 24 hours of the event.

Heading into Monday evening we may see a few showers as the cold front draws near. But the showers will turn to snow pretty quick. This transition should begin between 10 p.m. and midnight for the Shoals. The changeover to snow should happen for everyone by 3 a.m.. Snow will fall through early Tuesday morning and be done by 9 a.m..

This should give us between 1 to 3" of snow.

We will see mostly sunny skies for the rest of Tuesday. Melting will take place during this time even with temperatures falling throughout the afternoon. Once the sun starts setting this will create another big issue of refreezing. Which means roads will probably be slick through Wednesday morning.

Travel could be difficult and your Tuesday morning commute could be impacted.
