Special Statement
Issued: 5:24 AM CST Jan. 17, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Widespread hazardous travel conditions will continue this
morning...

The combination of bitterly cold, subfreezing temperatures and snow
accumulations has led to the development of black ice on area
roadways. Emergency management and law enforcement officials have
reported slick roads, and dangerous travel conditions across northern
Alabama and southern middle Tennessee, particularly on secondary
roads.

These hazardous travel conditions will persist through much of the
morning, including the rush hour commute as temperatures will remain
well below freezing. High temperatures will rise only into the lower
20s later this afternoon. Travel is strongly discouraged and should
be avoided unless absolutely necessary.

If you must travel, use extreme caution, especially on bridges,
overpasses, and elevated highways. Reduce travel speed as appropriate
and leave extra room for vehicles in front of you. Do not assume that
a well traveled Road will be totally free of ice. Dress warmly and
keep a winter travel kit in your vehicle.
