The National Weather Service offices in Birmingham and Huntsville have now canceled the Freezing Rain Advisory for all but Cherokee and Cleburne Counties.

The counties in yellow on the map are the Freezing Rain Advisory. The red counties are a Winter Storm WArning for the Georgia Mountains.

In Alabama, temperatures fell from their minimum readings that occurred during the late evening and remain well above freezing in most areas.

Temperatures over Northeast Alabama are in the middle and upper 30s with dew points in the teens and twenties. As precipitation falls, temperatures may drop a few more degrees because of evaporational cooling thanks to those low dew point readings.

Did have a report just east of Cedar Bluff in Cherokee County of 34F with a light rain and sleet mix, but temperatures will slowly rise even in that area. It may cool to freezing as that wet bulb cooling occurs.

There could be some brief icing issues over extreme northern Cherokee County and Cleburne Counties through mid-morning, but everyone else will be fine.
