Alabama Snow - March 1, 2009
Residents of virtually the entire state of Alabama awaked to a rare sight this morning. Snow fell from the Tennessee line south almost to the Florida line.
Measurable snow fell across most of the state, from a dusting in the Dothan area to several inches in the north. Cheaha State Park and other areas in the mountains reported a significant snowfall, while 1-2 inches was forecast for both Birmingham in Montgomery.
Some light traffic problems were reported, but the warm ground temperatures and the fact that the snow came on a Sunday kept driving issues to a minimum.
Such events are historic in Alabama because a snow that falls across virtually the entire state is rare.
