Alabama Skies: Ice threat creeps into Alabama

Published 1:30 am Wednesday, February 1, 2023

As we mentioned yesterday, the wintry mix was getting just too close to Alabama to not have any impacts. It’s no surprise our northern counties got some sleet and freezing rain. If you’re traveling in this region today, give yourself a little extra time to deal with some possible ice issues, especially on bridges and overpasses. Or, if you’re traveling into northern Mississippi or Tennessee, check highway conditions as those areas received quite a bit more frozen precipitation. There are also areas of dense fog across the state.

We’re still expecting some torrential rain tomorrow, but our stretch of gloomy weather is just about over. We should get a nice day or two to dry out some at the end of the week.
