If you happen to be caught on some icy spots while driving, be sure to reduce your speed, and my Dad always said to be sure to turn into the slide.  Also, Icy Road Safety encourages you to stay off icy roads.  Also, they remind you to wear your seat belt, pay attention to the weather, go easy on the breaks, turn into a slide, avoid hills, and more.

Also, the National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook.  Rain may transition to a wintry mix across far northern and northwestern portions of Central Alabama beginning around 6 PM this evening. A brief snow accumulation around a tenth of an inch or less is possible along and north of a line from Vernon to Double Springs through midnight.
