Alabama Skies: Ice, tornadoes possible today

Published 1:30 am Thursday, February 2, 2023

It seems that ole groundhog just won’t let go of gloomy days in Alabama. From a winter weather advisory in the northern part of the state to a risk for severe storms and tornadoes near the Gulf Coast, many of us are hoping for some sunny days to dry out and get some fresh air.

The good news is we may finally get just that when the cold front finally passes through. It’s looking like we may have some nicer weather this weekend, but first we have to get through the flooding rains and storms today. Grab a jacket and an umbrella before you head out!

North Alabama

Freezing rain or rain in the morning, then showers with a high near 44. Showers tonight with a low around 32.

Widespread showers throughout the day with a high of 47. Rain continues tonight with a low near 35.
