North Alabama still dealing with effects of snow

Cold Weather

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – Parts of north Alabama are still dealing with the effects of a storm that dumped about a half-foot of snow across the Tennessee Valley.

About a half-dozen school systems delayed opening Tuesday to allow time for slick spots on roads to thaw out. And the city of Athens said about 700 homes and businesses remained without power, down from a high of about 3,500.

The National Weather Service says between 2 inches and 6 inches of snow fell across much of the area late Sunday and early Monday, with a few areas receiving 7 inches.

Forecasters say more wintry precipitation is possible Thursday.
