Snow flurries possible after thunderstorms, ALDOT ready to respond
The cold front behind this morning’s storms and high winds will possibly bring scattered snow flurries and icy weather, the National Weather Service in Huntsville said.
“We might have some minor accumulation which could impact travel,” said NWS forecaster Huntir Cramer.
She said flurries could begin around 4 or 5 a.m. Friday and keep “periodically happening throughout the day” and into Saturday morning.
“Use caution driving on overpasses and bridges because those ice first,” she said.
Tonight’s low temperature will be 35 degrees. The high Friday will be 40, and the low Friday night will be 27.
Areas of higher elevation are more likely to receive stronger flurries and accumulation, but flurries are possible for most of north Alabama.
The Alabama Department of Transportation said Thursday they will monitor road conditions Friday and be ready to respond should hazardous conditions develop on state highways.
Motorists are advised to check local weather reports and check road conditions on algotraffic.com or via the ALGO Traffic app before traveling. Please drive with caution, particularly in higher elevations, on bridges and overpasses, and on routes that are heavily shaded or otherwise protected from sun and wind.
