MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Haven't got the slightest idea what you're going to get your sweetheart this Valentine's Day? Don't worry, The Great American Cookie Company has you covered! LIVE on the show today, Patrick Smith and Valerie Ball from The Great American Cookie Company will be joining us for some fun and easy decorating tips.

Just two weeks ago, the weather crippled parts of our state. Now another state of emergency is in effect for the northern counties of Alabama. Snow is steadily falling and the Governor says he isn't taking any chances. Leaders are encouraging people to avoid unnecessary travel. Coming up we will show you how the storm is effecting those parts of the state.

We may not be getting any snow in the central and southern parts of the state, but we are seeing the rain. How long can we expect these slippery conditions? Meteorologist Josh Johnson will have the latest details on this week's forecast.
