(WHNT) – It’s another cold, rainy start to the day, with a little bit of freezing rain mixing in with some light rain west of I-65 in North Alabama and across southern middle Tennessee. 

Expect the potential for a few more light patches of freezing rain this morning, before a changeover to all rain likely later this morning as all temperatures warm above freezing.

Due to the fact that freezing rain/sleet will remain a possibility as temperatures cool this evening and tonight, the National Weather Service in Huntsville has extended the Winter Weather Advisory for; Lauderdale, Colbert, Franklin, Lawrence, Limestone, Lincoln (TN) and Moore (TN) until 6:00 am Wednesday morning.

Like yesterday, mainly light accumulations on elevated and metallic surfaces (trees, power lines, cars…etc.) are expected.  Widespread disruptive travel is not anticipated, but there could be a few icy patches, especially on bridges and overpasses, so take it slow. The Winter Weather Advisory for; Cullman, Madison, Morgan and Franklin (TN) counties will be allowed to expire at 9:00 am this morning.

High temperatures today will only warm into the upper 30s and low to mid 40s at best, with a continued chance for light to moderate rain.  Some patches of freezing rain/sleet may mix in with the some of the rain tonight with temperatures close to freezing, especially in Northwest Alabama and southern middle Tennessee. 

Precipitation will gradually taper off Wednesday, before an upper level low could potential bring more rain and possibly some wet snow Thursday. Get ready for an even bigger blast of cold air next week!
