Snow, usually a rare occurrence in Central Alabama, has been almost common this winter.

There’s another chance to see some white stuff this week, overnight Wednesday, though no definite amount is being projected by the National Weather Service center in Calera.

“It’s still very early in the game, and we’re going to have to wait and see how it develops,” Meteorologist Angel Montanez said.

The anticipated system has yet to form, Montanez said.

Current models for the system vary from no snow in central Alabama to as much as 2 inches.

Even if no snow falls in the area, winter 2011 has been one of the most active, in terms of snow events, in recent memory, according to Montanez.

Like most of the week, low temperatures Wednesday night and Thursday morning should dip into the 20s, with the high on Thursday in the low 40s.

Temperatures should warm up this weekend, with NWS predicting a high of about 50 on Saturday and into the low 50s on Sunday.

“It’s a heat wave considering what we’ve been dealing with,” Montanez said.
