Good morning from The Cullman Times.
Motorists driving to work or school today should have clear passage along area roads. No major road projects or wrecks have been reported this morning by law enforcement officers, but officers are reminding everyone of speed limits and the traffic congestion that can occur around schools.
Look for showers and thunderstorms to move into the Cullman County area after 1 p.m. today. Wind is coming from the southwest today at 10-20 miles per hour, but as storms pick up in the afternoon gusts could reach as high as 30 miles per hour. Today’s high will be 79, according to the National Weather Service.
Showers are expected to continue into the early evening, with north wind at 5 miles per hour. The low will be 57.
Rain is expected again Tuesday. Otherwise the day will be mostly cloudy with the high reaching 69. Wind will continue from the north at 5-15 miles per hour.
Developing stories today at The Times include a report on the state’s audit of the Cullman County Revenue Department, and more insight on what the state legislature will tackle in Montgomery.
In the week ahead, look for additional stories developing on the problems at the North-central Alabama Regional Council of Governments. Cullman and Cullman County officials are members of the organization.
In your drives across town, you may notice blue ribbons tied to hand rails and other structures. That’s because April is Child Abuse Awareness Month. Contact Cullman Caring for Kids at 256-739-1111 for information on how to spot abuse and what to do about it.
Good morning from The Cullman Times.
