Preparing for a Wintry Mix



Governor Robert Bentley on Monday issued a State of Emergency for all Alabama counties in preparation for winter weather.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning in effect from 9 p.m. this evening (Tues., Feb. 10) to midnight Wednesday.

Another round of wintry weather now appears likely Tuesday night through Wednesday night for much of North Central Alabama. This second round of winter weather may have higher accumulations of snow and sleet for much of North Central Alabama than the first round occurring tonight into Tuesday.

The best potential for snow and sleet accumulations through Tuesday will be for areas generally along and north of a line from Aliceville to Tuscaloosa to Talladega to Heflin. For several miles south of this line...accumulations of freezing rain will also be possible.

Accumulations of one to two inches of snow and sleet will be likely through Tuesday across much of North Central Alabama. further south between one and two tenths of an inch of freezing rain will be possible. This includes the cities of Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Anniston.

A winter storm warning means significant amounts of snow, sleet and ice are expected or occurring. This will make travel very hazardous or impossible.
