HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Ready or not, Mother Nature is about to dump a little more winter weather on the Tennessee Valley later this week.

Madison County EMA officer Scott Worsham says thanks to preparation and forecasting, they're able to handle these winter weather events and they make sure surrounding agencies are ready, too.

"Constantly keep our public works departments updated, our school systems as well as our medical facilities... we keep looking to the next event to be prepared because we don't want to be caught off guard," said Worsham.

Public Works officials say they'll be more than prepared should we have more icy conditions by the end of the week.  by the end of the day Monday, they'll have more than 100,000 pounds of bags of salt. They also have 1,200 tons of gravel ready to spread on the roads.

Worsham says his crews aren't exhausted, they're ready to take on the next round and they're thanking citizens for their cooperation so far.

"People looked at the forecast, they took the information and when the snow started... they realized it was an actual event and they needed to limit their travel, and crews did an excellent job getting the roads cleared," said Worsham.
