Snow could begin to fall as early as 3 p.m. in some areas of Calhoun County today, according to the latest reports from the National Weather Service.

At 11:30 a.m., temperatures in Anniston still hadn’t dipped below freezing, but meteorologist John De Block in the Weather Service’s office in Calera said cold wind from the east would likely settle in on the county in the next several hours. De Block said some areas of the county had already seen freezing rain, and those areas could see snowfall between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Southern areas of the county will likely see snow after 6 p.m., with 2 to 3 inches expected to pile up in Anniston and Oxford before midnight, De Block said.

Snowfall is expected to taper off after midnight, and the forecast calls for a high in the mid 40s Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Areas to the north and east of Calhoun County had already received frozen rain, De Block said, and an ice storm warning has been issued for Cleburne and Randolph counties.

De Block said Calhoun County will likely get less than a quarter-inch of ice accumulation from the freezing rain.
