Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 4:38 PM CST Jan. 18, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Icy roads remain a potential hazard...

Across interior southeastern Mississippi, southwestern Alabama
and the westernmost Florida Panhandle, patches of ice on the roadways
will continue to be a hazard through at least Friday morning.

*What?... some areas of ice did not melt completely today and
residual water will likely refreeze with the cold temperatures
tonight. Ice can be hard to identify on roadways until you have
already driven over it. Patches of ice will linger on the
roadways, especially bridges, overpasses and on roads sheltered
from the sun.

*When and where?... patches of ice will linger through at least
Friday morning and possibly into Friday night, mainly north of
I-10 and especially along and north of Highway 84. Inland County
emergency managers have confirmed the ice on roads. So, slow down
and use extra precaution if you must drive!

In general, those areas that received the most snowmelt and
freezing rain, which is generally over interior sections of
southern Alabama and southeastern Mississippi, will continue
experiencing patches of ice the longest, meaning over the next
several nights.

In shaded areas, ice will likely persist during the heat of the
day Friday afternoon and into Friday night north of the Highway
84 corridor. /Dvb
