Good Morning from the Frozen Tundra

| January 7, 2017 @ 8:06 am

809 AM… Several jackknifed tractor trailer trucks on I-459 at Liberty Park. Wreckers dispatched.
… I-20 is shut down at Bass Pro Shops in Leeds
… There are multiple accidents on I-20 from Leeds through Moody, Pell City, Riverside and Lincoln
… I-65 is completely blocked by a jack-knifed tractor trailer at Exit 252 (Montgomery Hwy)

Good morning from the frozen tundra that is Central Alabama. Just imagine hearing that with John Facenda from NFL Films of the 70s saying it.

There is live coverage from James, Charles and Meghan right now on 33/40. That coverage will go until 830 a.m.

Winter Storm Warnings continue for the pink counties. The purple counties are in a Winter Weather Advisories.

Conditions in the Winter Storm Warning area are still extremely dangerous. There are abandoned trucks and cars in many areas. The bridges are several degrees colder than the road surfaces.

Please delay your travel until noon in the Winter Storm Warning area.

In the Winter Weather Advisory area, roads are treacherous in spots.

Slips and falls will be a problem today as well, with ice on decks, steps and sidewalks. Be careful out there.

Plenty of sunshine but won’t get above freezing until tomorrow. So the sun will help, but there will still be icy patches through tomorrow.

We will be in the teens and some single digits tonight.
