Across interior southeastern Mississippi, southwestern Alabama
and the westernmost Florida Panhandle, patches of ice on the
roadways will continue to be a hazard today and possibly tonight.

*What?...Some areas of ice have not melt completely and any
 residual water likely refroze overnight with the very cold
 temperatures. Ice can be hard to identify on roadways until you
 have already driven over it. Patches of ice will linger on the
 roadways, especially bridges, overpasses and on roads sheltered
 from the sun.

*When and Where?...Patches of ice will linger through at least
 early afternoon and possibly into tonight, mainly north of I-10
 and especially along and north of Highway 84. Inland county
 emergency managers have confirmed the ice on roads. So, slow down
 and use extra precaution if you must drive!

In general, those areas that received the most snowmelt and
freezing rain, which is generally over interior sections of
southern Alabama and southeastern Mississippi, will continue
experiencing patches of ice the longest, meaning over the next
several nights.

In shaded areas, ice will likely persist during the heat of the
day today and into Friday night north of the Highway 84 Corridor.
