School Cancellations for January 29th

Tuesday, January 29th we are expecting snow across the north Alabama and south Tennessee area. Monday night an Arctic front is supposed to move in with snow fall  totaling 1 to 3 inches with the higher number coming in the higher elevated areas. The speed of the front will dictate how much snow we get. A slow moving front leads to more snow but we're expecting it to be a fast moving front which will limit the snow fall.

After the front pushes through, very cold air comes in keeping all of Tuesday below freezing before rising above 32 degrees sometime during the day on Wednesday. Expect snow and ice to affect roadways all the way through Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

As of 3:00pm, Governor Kay Ivey declared a state of emergency for all counties in Alabama in preparation for winter weather.

Huntsville is expecting some severe winter weather tonight and into tomorrow. Huntsville Fire & Rescue would like to remind everyone to stay off snow cover roads. If you have to drive, please take some extra time to get to your destination. During these type of events 911 receives multiply calls about vehicles off the roadway. If there is a vehicle off the roadway, we ask the citizens to take notice and see if there is any yellow tape around the vehicle. If so, this signifies the vehicle has been checked and cleared by an emergency agency.
