Let it snow, let it snow!

“It’s snowing!” was on the lips of residents throughout Covington County Wednesday.
Light flurries began around 9 a.m. in the northern part of the county, with Red Level Elementary School calling in the first report of snow.
By 9:45 a.m., snowfall became heavy throughout Andalusia and later made an appearance in both Opp and in parts of the south end of the county.
There were only a few pockets of accumulation as flurries soon gave way to sleet. By lunch, the skies had cleared.
While temperatures hovered around 35 degrees throughout the day, it’s a much different picture than what residents will see throughout the rest of the week.
Forecasts are predicting sunny skies and a high of 56 degrees today and low tonight of 28.
Things will heat up again on Friday and Saturday, where we could see a high of 68.
However, things will revert back to winter weather Sunday when the nightly low is forecasted at 19 degrees.
There is a 40 percent chance of rain, which also means the county could once again see snow flurries.
