Temperatures across North Alabama range from 36 to 43 as of 9 a.m. Moderate to heavy rain is falling across the area. If temperatures were 5-10 degrees colder at the surface we would be experiencing an ice storm of historic proportions.
Those travelling to the northeast of Alabama need to be especially careful and pay close attention to the weather. Heavy snow is expected in the Appalachians and Winter Storm Warnings are up from roughly eastern Tennessee to New York City.
