Episode Narrative A strong surface high over the Appalachian mountains kept temperatures at or just below freezing across much of northern Alabama Tuesday morning. At the same time, a strong southerly low level jet developed and lifted Gulf of Mexico moisture northward over this cold air. This caused widespread light freezing rain and sleet to occur in portions of southern middle Tennessee and northern central Alabama. Most locations received a glaze to 1/10 of an inch of icing.
Event Narrative Franklin County Sheriffs department reported numerous accidents due to icy roads countywide. A good number of these accidents occurred on icy roads near and south of Russellville, particularly along US highway 43. A glaze to 1/10 of an inch of ice accumulated.
