* WHAT…Freezing rain expected. Total ice accumulations of a
light glaze.
* WHERE…Portions of south central and southwest Alabama and
southeast Mississippi.
* WHEN…From 9 PM Monday to 9 AM CST Tuesday.
* IMPACTS…Roads, and especially bridges and overpasses, will
likely become slick and hazardous. The hazardous conditions
could impact the morning commute.
Delay all travel if possible. If travel is absolutely necessary,
drive with extreme caution and be prepared for sudden changes in
road conditions. Leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle
ahead of you. Allow extra time to reach your destination. Avoid
sudden braking or acceleration and be especially cautious on hills
or when making turns.

Freezing rain remains possible late Monday night into Tuesday morning northwest of Interstate 65 as a cold front crosses the area. Cold air moving over the area behind the front will limit temperatures to the upper 30s to mid 40s over most of the area Tuesday. The continued push of cold air will bring temperatures dropping into the teens and winds chills in the single digits to most of the area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
