Thursday’s Snowfall Round-Up

Here’s the snowfall round-up from Thursday’s winter weather event.  I’m a tough critic on our forecasts, and considering the type storm system this was, the forecast was decent for about 80% of the Tennessee Valley.  As I explained yesterday, the Northeast Alabama counties were a miss as was a heavier burst of snow in northern Colbert, eastern Lauderdale, and Lawrence County, Tennessee.

The evidence of the forecast, the uncertainty, and the adjustments are here for you to review on Valleywx.com.  Over-all, I’d say it gets a B- mainly because of the lack of snow north and east of Huntsville.
