Evening news headlines

Greetings from the FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with some of the stories we're working on for you tonight:

The changeover has begun

After days of talking about it, that violent shift in temperatures is here. We topped out near 80 today and by the time you go to bed tonight it'll be near-freezing in the northwestern part of our viewing area.

Hamilton appears to be in the bullseye for some sleet or freezing rain and we've got Erika Gonzalez camped out there tonight to give us live ground truth on the road conditions there and we've got a crew in Walker County to do the same.

We also have all of the updated school delays and closings right here.

County runs dry

And an Alabama Supreme Court decision that may ban the sale of alcohol in several cities has Fayette's mayor particularly worried. The city just started selling alcohol a few months ago after approving sales and now they're worried about how they're going to pave roads if they can't collect that sales tax. Josh Gauntt is in Fayette tonight talking to the worried mayor.

I hope you'll join us for these stories and more starting at 9. Watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or in the WBRC News app.
