"Temperatures are now below freezing as far south as Birmingham and Tuscaloosa freezing rain could lead to bridge icing very soon. I would stay off the roads north of I-59… they are mostly ice covered and dangerous," Spann said on social media.

Spann continued, "Many county governments have deemed roads impassable."
