Gov. Robert Bentley is issuing a statewide state of emergency in advance of dangerous winter weather that's forecast to hit the state.
The state of emergency begins at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Bentley says the state is taking no chances as the winter weather nears the state.
The governor says he is urging schools to close if they are in an area predicted to have snow and ice accumulations. He is urging people to be cautious and avoid all unnecessary travel.
Bentley says a wrecker unit of the Alabama National Guard is on standby with crews positions throughout north Alabama.
The governor says the state's emergency operations center has been activated to handle response to the storm.
