Watches & Warnings

Winter Weather Advisory, Wind Chill Advisory
Issued: 2:27 PM CST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6 am CST
Wednesday...
... Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect from midnight tonight to
11 am CST Wednesday...

* what... precipitation initially in the form of a wintry mix of
light freezing rain and/or sleet, will soon turn into snow late
from late this afternoon through mid to late evening. Light
accumulations of freezing rain, less than a tenth of an inch,
are expected before the transition to all snow. Total snow
accumulations overnight will range from a half inch to an inch,
and perhaps as high as up to two inches in heavier bands that
form along and east of I-65 over both interior southwest and
south central Alabama. Strong north winds will cause dangerous
wind chills as values fall into the single digits overnight.
Conditions will very slowly improve through noon tomorrow.

* Where... interior counties of southwest and south central Alabama.

* When... a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6 am CST
Wednesday. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect from midnight
tonight to 11 am CST Wednesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory means periods of freezing rain, sleet
and snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery
roads, especially on bridges and overpasses.

A Wind Chill Advisory means cold air and the wind will combine to
create low wind chills. Frost bite and hypothermia can occur if
precautions are not taken. Dress in layers, wear a hat and
gloves.




Special Statement, Hard Freeze Warning
Issued: 6:24 PM CST Jan. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

At 625 PM CST radar, satellite, and surface reports indicate that
the leading edge of a light rain, sleet and snow mix is currently
moving into northwestern portions of the forecast area. Reports
of light snow and sleet have been received from both Wayne and
Choctaw counties over the past hour, and light snow or sleet is
also likely occurring over parts of northern Clarke and Washington
counties in Alabama, as well as Perry and Greene counties of
interior southeast Mississippi. Light accumulations of snow have
already occurred across parts of southeast Mississippi and snow
will begin to accumulate into portions of southwest Alabama soon.
The wintry mix of precipitation will slowly move eastward during
the evening hours. There may be a brief period of freezing rain
along the leading edge of the precipitation, but a changeover to
all snow is expected later this evening. Through 8 PM, we are
forecasting the mixed wintry precipitation to move east to a
Greenville, al to Monroeville, al to Citronelle, al to Grand Bay,
al line with light accumulations expected. Thus, most of interior
southeastern Mississippi and portions of southwest Alabama should
see snow or a snow/sleet mix through the early evening hours.

301 PM CST Tue Jan 16 2018

... Hard freeze warning remains in effect from 11 am Wednesday to
9 am CST Thursday...

* temperature... dropping to the mid teens to around 20 degrees
Wednesday night.

* Impacts... sub-freezing temperatures could result in
hypothermia and will also be a danger for pets, livestock and
sensitive vegetation. Exposed water pipes will be at risk of
freezing and possibly bursting.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A hard freeze warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower
are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to
burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes
are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small
stream of water overnight.

Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat.
Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor
pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth.

Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make
sure to utilize Carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces.
Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used
near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space
heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and
four out of five home heating fire deaths.
