A combination of frigid temperatures and snowfall are coming together today to create hazardous conditions. A state of emergency has been issued by Governor Kay Ivey as emergency officials prepare for what could be icy roads late this afternoon through tonight. The National Weather Service is calling for Central Alabama to get as much as two inches of snow and that includes the Montgomery area. Because of that, the Montgomery County Public School System has announced the school will close two hours early today. Buses will run their usual routes, but parents need to be aware that children will be arriving home two hours earlier than normal. Also, all after-school MPS programs, including sporting events have been canceled. Department of transportation officials are warning motorists to stay off the highways once the wintry mix begins to fall as road conditions will deteriorate rapidly.
