Traffic Update

| January 7, 2017 @ 5:43 pm

Still getting flooded with specific traffic questions this evening… again, I am a meteorologist, not a highway engineer, and all I can do is let you see the current real time situation… most of the issues are in the Birmingham metro. See the map below…


*While most roads are dry, icy spots remain
*Biggest issues seem to be concentrated east of Birmingham on interstate highways
*Temperatures tonight will drop into the teens again
*Biggest issues remain on ridges/mountains

If you drive tonight, understand that while most roads are dry, there ARE icy spots. I don’t have a way of knowing specific places where ice lingers, but the map on this post gives you a pretty good idea where ice and traffic issues linger.

Use your common sense and be careful!
