Travel Strongly Discouraged Today
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. tomorrow, and Alabamians are being urged not to travel after 10 a.m. today.
In his latest post on the ABC 33/40 Weather Blog, James Spann states that those of us in Tuscaloosa should be off the roads by noon today:
"Road conditions will deteriorate within 30 minutes to 1 hour after the onset of the snow. Be in a place where you want to be for 24-48 hours at that point. Don’t get stranded. For the larger cities of Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Anniston, and Gadsden, I would be off the roads by 12 noon today."
We will continue to monitor travel conditions across West Alabama and bring you the latest updates from Captain Ray in the Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Traffic Center.
