...Widespread Hazardous Travel Conditions will continue this

The combination of bitterly cold, subfreezing temperatures 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 Northern
Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee, particularly on secondary

These hazardous travel conditions will persist through much of the
morning, including the rush hour commute as temperatures will remain
well below freezing. High temperatures will rise only into the lower
20s later this afternoon. 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. Reduce travel speed as appropriate
and leave extra room for vehicles in front of you. Do not assume that
a well traveled road will be totally free of ice. Dress warmly and
keep a winter travel kit in your vehicle.

Most areas of north and west Georgia received up to an inch of
snow Tuesday afternoon and overnight. While many roads initially
remained wet, the bitterly cold temperatures and continued light
snow have caused most roadways north of a LaGrange to McDonough to
Commerce line to freeze. Another 1/2 to 1 inch of additional snow
this morning will cause roads in these areas to remain or become
extremely slick and hazardous. Further south and east, roads
could also become slick and hazardous. Temperatures will remain
well below freezing all day and through tonight.

Travel today and tonight is not advised. If you must travel,
please exercise extreme caution. Slow down and allow extra time to
reach your destination.

...Arctic Air Across Eastern Kentucky This Morning With Isolated
Snow Showers Possible...

Temperatures will generally average in the single digits above
zero across eastern Kentucky this morning. Despite the light
winds, wind chill values will average between 0 to 10 below zero
at times. If venturing outside, only do so for a short amount of
time. Cover and protect your head because this is where the
majority of your body heat is lost. Bring pets indoors and ensure
livestock have adequate shelter and access to water.

Snow flurries and/or isolated snow showers are possible this
morning. A dusting of additional snow accumulation is possible
this morning. Road conditions, especially secondary, back, or
untreated roads will likely be icy or snow covered and could
remain hazardous this morning with cold temperatures and
previously fallen snow. Use caution if traveling this morning.

...Very Cold Temperatures and Patchy Ice on Roads Through
Wednesday Morning...

Temperatures will stay below freezing tonight and Wednesday
morning, and any snow or liquid on the roads could turn to ice
with the very cold temperatures. Drivers should use caution
today. What appear to be wet spots on roads may actually be ice.
Motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses
where slippery spots often develop first.

Temperatures will fall into the teens or single digits overnight,
and even though winds will be light, wind chill values will be
near zero degrees. Dress warmly if you venture out, and keep a
winter travel kit in your vehicle.
