...HARD FREEZE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO
9 AM CST FRIDAY...

* TEMPERATURE...Falling into the mid teens to around 20 degrees
  tonight into Friday morning.

* IMPACTS...Sub-freezing temperatures could result in
  hypothermia and will also be a danger for pets, livestock and
  sensitive vegetation. Exposed water pipes will be at risk of
  freezing and possibly bursting.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Hard Freeze Warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower
are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to
burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes
are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small
stream of water overnight.

Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat.
Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor
pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth.

Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make
sure to utilize carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces.
Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used
near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space
heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and
four out of five home heating fire deaths.

...Icy roads remain a potential hazard...

Across interior southeastern Mississippi, southwestern Alabama
and the westernmost Florida Panhandle, patches of ice on the roadways
will continue to be a hazard through at least Friday morning.

*What?...Some areas of ice did not melt completely today and
 residual water will likely refreeze with the cold temperatures
 tonight. 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
 Friday morning and possibly into Friday night, 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 Friday afternoon and into Friday night north of the Highway
84 Corridor. /DVB
