...Widespread Hazardous Travel Conditions Will Continue Overnight
into Wednesday Morning...

The combination of bitter cold, subfreezing air and snow
accumulations has led to the development of black ice on area
roadways. Emergency management and law enforcement officials have
reported slick roads and dangerous travel conditions across North
Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee, particularly on secondary

These hazardous travel conditions will persist through much
of Wednesday morning, including the rush hour commute as
temperatures will remain well below freezing. Travel is strongly
discouraged and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary!

If you must travel, use extreme caution, especially on bridges,
overpasses, and elevated highways where water freezes first. Do not
assume that a well traveled road will be free of ice. Dress warmly
and keep a winter travel kit in your vehicle.
