Hard Freeze Warning in Effect 9 PM Jan 7th Thru 10 AM Jan 8th

01/07/2017 1:47:38 PM  The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a Hard Freeze Warning for our area from 9 PM this evening until 10 AM Sunday morning (Jan 8th). Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-teens overnight in Elmore County.

IMPACTS:  These frigid temperatures could cause pipes to burst. Be sure to check on your neighbors and pets and prepare for the cold. Also, while roads and bridges in Elmore County are open and passable, please keep in mind that any isolated areas of drainage or runoff onto roadways from recent rains will freeze and cause icy patches, creating hazardous driving conditions.      

Note:  If you plan on travelling, the NWS says numerous broadcast media and emergency management officials report widespread icy conditions remain throughout the NWS’s County Watch Area. Travel is still not advised in many areas. Please consult broadcast media and ALDOT for current road conditions BEFORE attempting to travel.
