Snow through 6 PM this Evening
2:20 PM Update:
We have noticed a drying trend in northern Madison and Jackson Counties; snow will taper to just flurries (maybe a dusting) north of US 72. To the south, there is still potential for some locally higher amounts in the mountains in Marshall, DeKalb, Etowah and Cherokee Counties.
The sun is actually shining now in Florence, and temperatures are warming quickly into the 40s behind the snow. Most roads west of US 231 will be passable this evening as warm ground temperatures melt the snow from beneath. Anything that does not dry out tonight will freeze hard in the morning as patchy black ice. School delays are possible.
