…Icy Roadways Will Persist Overnight Across Northwest Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee…

As cold air rushes into the region, ice and sleet that fell Monday will remain in place on area roadways. It will still be difficult, if not impossible to travel. Roads may also be blocked by falling trees or tree limbs.

Bridges and overpasses, especially those crossing the Tennessee River, are especially at risk. Do not assume that a well traveled road will be free of ice.

For a list of affected roadways, consult local media outlets.

…Black Ice Developing across Northeast Alabama…

Lingering moisture from recent rainfall, in combination with cold air moving into the region, has created widespread black ice on a number of area roadways, including some major highways. Bridges and overpasses, especially those crossing the Tennessee River, are especially at risk.

Black ice can be especially dangerous because you may not be able to see it until you have already encountered it. If traveling, use extreme caution, especially on bridges, overpasses, and elevated highways where water freezes first. Do not assume that a well traveled road will be free of ice.

For a list of affected roadways, consult local media outlets.
