ICY ROADS CAUSE WRECKS, SCHOOL DELAYS IN NORTH ALABAMA

Cold Weather

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – Icy roads caused wrecks and school delays in north Alabama after a round of light snow and temperatures in the 20s.

News outlets reported multiple crashes on elevated roads and overpasses early Wednesday near Huntsville, including Interstates 565 and 65. No serious injuries were reported, but traffic was slow in areas.

At least two dozen school systems opened two hours late as a precaution to give time for icy patches to thaw. A few government offices and businesses also delayed opening.

Forecasters say daytime highs in the upper 40s should melt away any remaining ice.
