Icy patches have been reported on roadways as well as on bridges and overpasses.Cullman County Road Department crews have been out since just after daylight to check county roads and mitigate problem areas. Drivers are advised to be aware that there are some areas of ice especially on secondary roads and in areas that are sheltered from the sun and wind. Non-essential travel is discouraged but roads are open and passable if travel is necessary. Some patchy ice in areas but all state roads in Cullman County are open and passable. ALDOT crews continue to check I-65 to mitigate any problem areas. Travelers are advised to be aware that there could be icy spots and give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination."

From the National Weather Service in Huntsville:

"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."
