Tuscaloosa considered lucky after first round of winter weather

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, AL - The City of Tuscaloosa held two weather briefings Tuesday. One at 5 a.m. and another at 3:30 p.m. City officials said Tuscaloosa was lucky and didn't experience any major icing issues. During the 5 a.m. meeting the city, along with ALDOT decide to go ahead and sand over three bridges that cross over the Black Warrior River, including the Bryant Bridge, the Hugh Thomas bridge the Woolsey Finnell bridge. But Tuscaloosa County EMA Director David Hartin said over the next twenty-fours hours all eyes will be focused on whether the thermostat gets below freezing in Tuscaloosa County.

"That's the big question. That's the question we'll be watching very closely just to see how this may impact us. You know you plan for the worse, hope for the best," Hartin added.

The Tuscaloosa City School System will reopen tomorrow (Wednesday), but the system is urging parents to come up with a back up plan in case they do decide to dismiss early. Tuscaloosa City Hall will also reopen Wednesday and officials said they're keeping their fingers are crossed that they wont have any weather related accidents, much like Tuesday.
