Winter storm warning beginning 6 p.m., Sunday: Northern Alabama & South central Tennessee

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you head out the door the morning, be aware of fog and slick roads in some areas. In fact, the message from ALDOT officials, don’t travel over the next few days if you don’t have to.

You can expect overcast skies and cold temperatures to start the day, with moisture moving in this afternoon and evening.

Temperatures will start off in the upper 20s and lower 30s, and remain stagnant throughout the day.

Beginning at 6 p.m., Northern Alabama and South central Tennessee will be under a winter storm warning until 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Monday and Tuesday are First Alert Weather Days due to the threat of icy roads, power outages and damage to trees. The greatest threat for this will be over northwest Alabama and southern Middle Tennessee beginning Monday afternoon. These areas could see a fourth to half an inch of ice buildup.

Farther east, the threat of freezing rain will move into the Huntsville metro area after 4 p.m. Monday, with up to a fourth an inch of ice. Up to an inch of snow is also possible if the colder air moves in a little faster. Stay safe, stay alert and stay weather aware.
