Winter weather will impact many area roadways this morning. The worst of the weather has remained just to the north of the I-20 corridor this morning. We've had multiple reports of icy conditions and roads are expected to worsen through 8am.
The Highway 278 corridor has been on of the worst places for icy travel. We've also had numerous reports of travel issues in Walker, Blount, Cullman, Etowah, Winston, and Marion Counties. If you must travel this morning - please use extra caution especially on bridges and other elevated roadways. Farther to the north, the Tennessee Valley is experiencing some heavy snowfall this morning. While we may have some road issues, the threat for power outages is considerably lower.
If you live south of I-20, expect mainly a cold rain through the morning hours. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 30s later today and this should help reduce any widespread road issues. Expect to see off and on rainfall through the rest of the day with the possibility of additional snowfall east of I-65 later this evening and possibly continuing through Wednesday.
