The National Weather Service has upgraded the winter weather advisory to a winter storm warning effective from 9 p.m. Monday night through Wednesday night at midnight.

Counties in the winter storm warning include:

Marion, Lamar, Fayette, Walker, Winston, Pickens, Tuscaloosa, Jefferson, Blount, St. Clair, Etowah, Cherokee, Calhoun, and Cleburne.

A winter weather advisory has been included for the following counties: Cullman, Sumter, Greene, Hale, Bibb, Shelby, Talladega, Clay and Randolph.

We are expecting the bulk of the moisture to move into the area after midnight. Temperatures will fall to just below freezing during the overnight hours and we are likely going to see a period of light rain, sleet, freezing rain and even snow.

The best chance for snowfall remains north of I-20. The best chance for icy roads will be from 4 a.m until 10 a.m. on Tuesday. We'll have to watch this carefully based on where the precipitation falls and where the freezing line sets up. The threat for major problems is less south of I-20, but not completely out of the question.

I would expect travel problems along elevated surfaces, bridges, overpasses and hilly terrain through Tuesday morning. We will briefly warm into the mid 30s on Tuesday and that will help reduce some of the travel issues. It's possible we could see some powerline issues as well.

Models are indicating another winter weather event late Tuesday into Wednesday.
