Weather Update: EMA Director: Precipitation key variable in weather
Escambia County EMA Director David Adams said this afternoon that the local area is currently under a Winter Weather Advisory until 6 a.m., Wednesday.
“We will see temperatures well below freezing tonight with a rebound of only a few degrees above freezing for a very short time tomorrow to allow for clearing,” he said. “Wednesday night is forecast to be in the teens, so the conditions may not get much better.”
“The forecast calls for some wintry mix and possibly some snow beginning in our area in the early evening hours,” he said. “With the temperatures falling all afternoon and evening, whatever does fall will likely freeze and make travel hazardous.”
The area is also under a Hard Freeze Warning and Wind Chill Advisory, he said.
Adams said bridges will freeze before the road surface and may surprise drivers.
