Although conditions were vastly improved, some local roadways remained tricky to navigate Friday morning.
One rollover accident occurred on Alabama Highway 9 near Highway 35, just past a large patch of ice in the northbound lane.
Luckily, no one was injured.
We have also have this traffic advisory: Motorists traveling on U.S. 278 at the Georgia State Line in Cherokee County need to be aware that one lane of traffic will be blocked today for a recovery operation involving an 18-wheeler that ran off the road during the snow storm. Motorists could face delays and are asked to be patient.
With temperatures now above freezing we should melt away much of the remaining snow and ice on the roadways.
We will stay above the freezing mark until around 9 or 10 Friday night.
However, the temp will drop to an overnight low in the 20s so scattered icy patches cannot be ruled out for Saturday morning, especially on some bridges and overpasses and back roads.
Just continue to drive with caution.
Schools were closed Friday but most businesses have reopened.
However, the Cherokee County Public Library’s “Affordable Care Act” workshop scheduled for today has been cancelled.
It will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
We have only once cancellation for Saturday to tell you about.
The Gaylesville PTSO “Winter Festival”, scheduled for this Saturday (February 1st), has been postponed. A rescheduled date will be announced later.
