HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The cold weather didn't make driving on rough roads any easier, and it may contribute to making some roads even rougher.

Our first stop is Fell Avenue in Huntsville. The main problem here is a large pothole. One viewer estimated it at about eight inches around and four inches deep. You would definitely feel it if you drove over it.

It's something we're going to see a lot of in the coming months with the cold weather, though this one's been there for awhile. A public works crew already has a work order for it, so look for them to patch it in the next week or two.

The same viewer also raised the question of speed bumps to slow down morning and evening commutes to and from Lee High School and work. The city would need to do a traffic study to see if Fell Avenue warrants that.

More road problems and not-so-smooth spots – over on Old Gurley Road in Northeast Huntsville. "One of the most poorly maintained streets in Madison County" is how one viewer referred to it, adding that it's rough, with potholes from Harris Hills to Shields Road… and the road is sinking.

The city is aware of the problem and has issued a work order to take care of the potholes.

    Scattered rain showers will linger this evening, especially east of I-65. There’s also a cold front still to our west that will move through the Valley with time overnight. Another round of heavier showers may develop along that front, but no severe weather is expected.
