Now comes the next phase of this brutal winter season: Another blast of bone-chilling Arctic air.

Some of that rain could be on the heavy side for parts of southwest Alabama on Monday, according to the weather service in Mobile, but no severe weather is expected.

Monday is a good news and bad news situation.

That's the real-world implications of a National Weather Service wind chill advisory, which will be in effect until 8 a.m. Sunday.

We may see a wintry mix of snow and sleet on Monday, with a 50 percent chance of precipitation and temperatures hovering around 32 degrees.
