BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The heavy rain falling across north-central Alabama today is expected to exit the state this afternoon and turn into a light rain or drizzle.

Temperatures will continue to plummet and forecast models show a small amount of snow could fall across the state Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning.

The amount of snowfall predicted around the state is only about one-tenth of an inch in most areas. Higher elevations in northwest Alabama could see between .3 and .7 inches, but the overall snowfall is expected to be "uneventful," according to FOX6 Chief Meteorologist J-P Dice.

The change from rain to snow could start in northwest Alabama by 9 p.m., but most will occur between midnight to 4 a.m. Dice says there could be a dusting in grassy areas.

Wednesday: Drivers are urged to be cautious on the roads Wednesday morning, especially on bridges and overpasses, but widespread travel problems are not expected.

The lows on Wednesday will be between 30 and 32 degrees, with gusty winds dropping the windchill into the teens. The sun should return on Wednesday afternoon.

Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving will be a gorgeous day with lots of sunshine and highs in the lower to mid 40s.

Football Forecast: If you're planning a trip to Auburn this weekend for the Iron Bowl, there is zero chance of rain. It will be partly sunny with a kickoff temperature of 58 degrees.
