UPDATE: 5:59 p.m. Jan. 6: Yes, folks, we know. It appears all of the precipitation has gone south of Cullman County; however, according to the Cullman County EMA, snow is still possible. Also, there have been isolated reports of bridges icing in the county. PLEASE BE CAREFUL if you must be out on the roads tonight and early tomorrow.


CULLMAN - Roads in Cullman County are fine right now, according to Cullman County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director Phyllis Little, but that may change soon. A band of snow is expected to arrive between 4-6 p.m. today, bringing up to 2 inches of snow.

"The roads are fine now, since we treated them after this morning," said Little. "But people need to remember that if it's wet, it's going to freeze. We're looking at temperatures tonight around a low of 16, with single-digit windchills in the morning. It's 25 degrees at the airport right now."

Little says that the EMA just received a briefing from the National Weather Service, and that there are increased snowfall predictions for Cullman, Marshall and Dekalb Counties.

"Instead of 1 to 1.5 inches of snow, we're expecting 1.5 to 2 inches, and it will arrive today between 4-6 p.m.," said Little

Little says she and her team will be monitoring conditions all night.
