Some slick spots are reported in the Shoals today as a wintry mix turns to snow that is expected to end at some point this afternoon.
The bridge at Alabama 207 in eastern Lauderdale County approaching Anderson is getting slick, Lauderdale Emergency Management Agency Director George Grabryan said.
In addition, two bridges on U.S. 72 near Joe Wheeler State Park are becoming slick, Grabryan said.
He said the Alabama Department of Transportation is making efforts to clear those bridges.
There were reports that one inch of snow had accumulated in Lawrenceburg, Tenn., and half of an inch in Rogersville.
Grabryan said temperatures in the county ranged from 31 to 34 degrees around 11 a.m. and the high is expected to reach the mid-30s. Winds are around 15 mph today and will be 5-15 mph overnight.
“We’re hoping this moisture will stop pretty soon and we want this wind to keep up and blow any moisture away,” Grabryan said.
Colbert EMA Director Mike Melton said three locations have been closed in the eastern part of the county. Those include Buck Bridge, King Bridge and a portion of Sixth Street near Fennell Road.
Melton said there are reports of slick spots elsewhere, but those generally melt or blow away.
He said temperatures around 11 a.m. ranged from near 36 degrees to 34 degrees in the county.
Franklin County, meanwhile, has been placed under a winter weather advisory.
Franklin EMA Director Roy Gober said there are some spots at higher elevations that could receive up to 2 inches of snowfall.
“It changed over to snow faster than they anticipated,” Gober said. “Right now, the county is OK on the roads. A couple of spots on the mountains are getting slushy, though.”
