BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – The winter storm that moved through the South left more than 8 inches of snow in parts of Alabama.
The National Weather Service says the Jackson County town of Pisgah received about 8.5 inches of snow by early Thursday. The community is located atop Sand Mountain in northeast Alabama.
The weather service says parts of metro Huntsville got 7 inches, and 6 inches fell in Albertville and Cherokee.
Accumulations of 4 to 5 inches of snow were common as far south as metro Birmingham.
The weather service says some spots in northeast Alabama got about a foot of snow over two days. That approaches snowfall totals from the blizzard that shut down much of the same area for days in 1993.
