Administrators at schools across West Alabama are deciding to either stay closed or delay operations as bitterly cold temperatures well below freezing are forecast early Wednesday morning.

The low for Tuscaloosa County tomorrow is just 11 degrees Fahrenheit, with single-digit temps expected in surrounding areas including Fayette, Lamar, Pickens, Sumter and Walker Counties.

Although temperatures warmed enough to melt away much of Monday night and Tuesday morning's freezing rain and snow, any remaining moisture will freeze again overnight, which may lead to more dangerous driving conditions Wednesday and harsh cold no matter what.
