As Alabamians are waking up in portions of the Yellowhammer state, you could be greeted with a dusting of snow on top of your cars and yards. The big concern this morning is with the wind chills, cold temperatures, and black ice.

It has been snowing in West Alabama on and off all night. Currently, at Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa off Skyland Boulevard, there are light flurries and our back parking lot is covered in snow with ice underneath.
