Episode Narrative After midnight on the 6th into the day on the 7th, a low pressure system which had developed in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico brought snowfall to northern Alabama. Most locations received around one half of an inch. However, isolated locations received around 1 inch of snowfall.
Refreezing of the melted snowfall produced slick conditions on the morning of the 8th. Icing was widespread across Marshall and DeKalb Counties. Emergency management officials discouraged travel in both counties. Numerous car accidents were reported across northern Alabama.
