RECAP: Sleet, snow reported in the Valley Sunday morning, early afternoon

Wintry weather moved through the Tennessee Valley Sunday morning and early afternoon, and while sleet and snow were observed in the region, little to no impacts have been reported.

The Alabama Department of Transportation said the roads are wet Sunday afternoon, but not icy. If it does get cold enough for the pavement to freeze, bridges and overpasses will freeze first. ALDOT reminds everyone to use extra caution while driving. The team there will be monitoring conditions all day and into the night.

The forecast for Sunday evening through overnight calls for a drying trend for the Valley, but an arctic blast will have temperatures dropping into the low-to-mid 20s through Monday morning.

Below is a recap of the sleet and snow reports from Sunday morning through afternoon.

We keep getting a LOT of reports of sleet, but there are no known travel problems at this time (9:33 AM).  Highway temperatures are high enough to prevent icing; however, any roads or bridges that remain wet through the evening could become slick tonight.

Travel conditions are generally ok this morning; there are a few reports of icy conditions on I-40 in East Tennessee, but that’s it.  If you’re traveling to/from Birmingham, Nashville, etc., it’s fine.
