WBRC FOX6 News announced today that it is launching a new weather-centric show “First Alert Weather Extra” on January 17, 2022, that will be available exclusively on WBRC’s streaming channels, to include the WBRC News app, wbrc.com, Roku, Amazon Fire, and Apple TV.
Temperatures are falling once again across central Alabama tonight thanks to a clear sky in place across the state. Winds have also become lighter, so we have a First Alert for freezing temperatures on Wednesday morning.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect tomorrow from 5:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. in Lamar, Marion, Winston, and Cullman Counties, where freezing rain could potentially fall thanks to a shallow layer of colder (near freezing) air at the surface.
Given the higher snow amounts in areas to the north, and especially in the higher terrain, there will be enough lingering snow and runoff for some isolated black ice issues; be extra cautious in these locations.
Officials with the Jefferson County EMA said coordinate with your family members about a safe spot on the lowest level of your home, and try to keep as many walls between you and the outside as possible, so interior bathrooms or basements.
There is still some uncertainty in how the severe risk will evolve Wednesday evening, but for now, most of our area is under a Level 2/5 risk for seeing strong to severe storms that could produce damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes.
