...HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE OVERNIGHT INTO
WEDNESDAY MORNING...

Even though the snow has mostly ended across areas along and north
of I-59, the combination of bitter cold and minor snow accumulations
will produce icy patches on area roadways. Emergency management
and law enforcement officials have reported slick roads and
dangerous travel conditions across many counties in north central
Alabama.

These hazardous travel conditions will persist through much
of Wednesday morning as temperatures will remain below freezing.
Travel is strongly discouraged overnight and into Wednesday
morning.

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.
