Here is a quick morning update from the warnings and advisories before the video.

The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Colbert, Franklin, Jackson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, and Madison Counties in North Alabama from midnight tonight until 6 am Tuesday. They are expecting heavy snow of 2-5 inches across these counties which will cause travel to become difficult. Wind chills near zero could be deadly if precautions aren’t taken.

They have upgraded their Winter Storm Watch to a Winter Weather Advisory from midnight tonight until 6 a.m. Tuesday for Marshall, Morgan, DeKalb, and Cullman Counties where they expect a wintry mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet to fall with accumulations of one inch of snow and ice accumulations up to one tenth of an inch. Morgan County could see two inches of snow along with the ice of up to one tenth of an inch. This will cause slippery road conditions.

The NWS in Birmingham has upgraded their watch to a Winter Storm Warning for Marion and Winston Counties from 6 p.m. tonight through 6 a.m. Tuesday. These two counties will experience up to two inches of snow and an ice accumulation of up to one tenth of an inch. This will create hazardous driving conditions starting this evening and continuing until Tuesday morning.

The NWS in Birmingham issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Lamar, Fayette, Walker, Blount, Etowah and Cherokee Counties from 6 a.m. Monday until 6 a.m. Tuesday for snow up to one inch accumulation and an ice accumulation to one tenth of an inch.

In the Winter Storm Warning areas, travel will become dangerous. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.

In the Winter Weather Advisory areas, travel is discouraged. If you must travel, slow down and use extra caution.

Wind chills across the entire area will drop into the single digits to near zero, so proper protection must be worn.
