Snowfall is expected to resume in Cullman county and surrounding areas between noon and 2 p.m., and as the temperature continues to drop, the roads will become hazardous for motorists.
Cullman County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director Phyllis Little said ice is becoming an issue in Northeast Alabama and snow accumulations could still reach five or more inches in Cullman County and area locations.
“We are confident the accumulation will be high and the heaviest amount of snow will begin from dark to approximately 9 p.m. and tapering off by midnight,” Little said. “Icing is reported on trees and power lines in northeast Alabama and the current temperatures in the Cullman area are hovering at freezing at this time. The only change is to the timing. The change over from rain to snow should begin across the area from noon to 2 p.m. in most locations.”
Little urges travelers to be cautious while on the roadways and be mindful of weather updates. Officials say to prepared for treacherous road conditions after the temperature drops and the snow begins to fall.
