It’s a running joke that Alabama weather is hardly predictable. Further humorous is our sudden need of milk and bread at the mention of snow and/or ice.

That can make travel conditions hazardous. Granted, the forecast can change multiple times over the course of the next 48 hours, and it probably will. But, there’s very little indication that we will dodge the bullet entirely.
