Message from Baldwin County EMA:

...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 region-wide 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.
