MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Forecasters say they expect snowfall to taper off in parts of northern and northwest Alabama.

National Weather Service meteorologist Robert Boyd says snowfall is beginning to slowdown and should not reach 2.5 inches of snow in the Shoals region of northwest Alabama on Friday. Boyd expects Madison County of northern Alabama to accumulate around 1.5 inches of snow by Saturday morning.

Boyd expects no more snowfall by noon Saturday in Alabama.

More than an inch of snow is expected in Huntsville. The Cullman, Guntersville and Fort Payne areas could see about an inch of snow.

In south Alabama, the National Weather Service received reports of toppled trees, large branches across roads and some power outages after thunderstorms struck Escambia and Mobile counties late Thursday night.
