BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Happy Tuesday morning! We saw some wrap around moisture that produced light rain across Central Alabama and even a few snow showers in North Alabama yesterday. With the ground still wet and temperatures now dropping below freezing, we could see some pockets of black ice form on bridges and overpasses. We are also dealing with fog. With freezing fog developing, ice will be a concern for additional ice formation.

A freezing fog advisory has been issued for most of Central Alabama until 8AM. You’ll also need extra time to thaw the ice off of your car. Allow some extra time to get to your destination and be careful if driving before 9 AM. Sky is gradually clearing out and we will finally see some sunshine this afternoon. High temperatures climbing into the upper 40s to lower 50s.
