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 Colbert county emergency management officials reported rural roads, primarily in southern and western portions of the county, were beginning to ice over. A glaze to 1/10 of an inch of ice accumulated.
