...HARD FREEZE WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM CST
THURSDAY...
...HARD FREEZE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY MORNING
THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING...

* TEMPERATURE...Falling into the mid teens to around 20 degrees
tonight into Thursday morning. Lows Thursday night into Friday
morning could potentially fall into upper teens to around 20
degrees.

* IMPACTS...Sub-freezing temperatures could result in
hypothermia and will also be a danger for pets, livestock and
sensitive vegetation. Exposed water pipes will be at risk of
freezing and possibly bursting.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Hard Freeze Warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower
are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to
burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes
are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small
stream of water overnight.

Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat.
Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor
pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth.

Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make
sure to utilize carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces.
Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used
near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space
heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and
four out of five home heating fire deaths.

...Black Ice Will Form Region-wide Tonight - Take Heed!...

Across interior southeastern Mississippi, inland and coastal
southwestern Alabama and the westernmost Florida Panhandle, black
ice will begin forming this afternoon and endure until the temperature
rises above freezing late tomorrow morning.

*What?...What is black ice? Black ice is a transparent sheet of
ice that forms on highways and can be difficult to identify until
you already driven over it. The source of black ice is melted
residual glaze from freezing rain and\or melted snow and sleet
that re- freezes. Black ice can be especially dangerous on
elevated roadways such as overpasses and inclines such as
bridges. This is where many reports have come from.

*When and Where?...Black ice will form once again regionwide from
4 PM until 10 AM tomorrow morning south of Highway-84 and endure
until Noon CST north of that Corridor. Local emergency management,
working very closely with the NWS in Mobile, AL today have
confirmed the black ice situation over most areas, and they are
very concerned about the situation over the next day or so. So,
slow down and use extra precaution if you must drive!

Black ice will form again, regionwide, from early Thursday
evening through early Friday morning. Finally, there may be
residual black ice that forms Friday night and into Saturday
morning, generally northeast of a line from Butler,AL to Grove
Hill, AL to Brewton, AL to Crestview, FL.

In general, those areas receiving the most snowmelt and freezing
rain, which is generally over interior sections of southern
Alabama and southeastern Mississippi, will continue experiencing
black ice the longest, meaning over the next several nights.

In shaded areas, black ice will likely persist during the heat
of the day on Thursday afternoon and again Friday afternoon
north of the Highway 84 Corridor. /23 JMM
