Update: Icing a problem in Jackson County

Update: 1/29/2014: We had quite a few snow flurries across the county last night, but no real accumulation. There is a great deal of icing and it is not melting as we move through the afternoon, so please exercise extreme caution driving or walking on sidewalks, decks, steps or patios.

A very cold night is ahead with temperatures into the teens, so please look out for your pets, plants and leave your water dripping (dripping means an almost or slightly constant stream).  You would rather pay a little more for water, electricity or gas than one of my great plumber friends!

4:30 p.m., 1/28/2014 - Snow flurries and freezing rain are being reported across Jackson County at this hour. Accumulation is possible as the evening continues.

The National Weather Service forecasts that snow will likely fall in the county from 6 p.m. tonight through at least 9 a.m. tomorrow. Jackson County and adjacent areas are under a Winter Storm Warning.

Exactly how much ice and snow the county and surrounding areas will receive tonight is difficult to predict, but please be cautious driving. Bridges and other concrete pavements will ice first and can become dangerously slick in these conditions.

The National Weather Service is predicting that Jackson County and other parts of the northern Florida Panhandle, Southeast Alabama and Southwest Georgia could experience between 1" and 3" of accumulation tonight and tomorrow as the freeze line dips across the area.
