    Instructions: A hard freeze warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small stream of water overnight. Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat. Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth. Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make sure to utilize carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces. Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and four out of five home heating fire deaths.

    Areas affected: George; Greene; Perry; Stone; Wayne
    Message Summary: ...icy roads remain a potential hazard...
    Across interior southeastern mississippi, southwestern alabama and the westernmost florida panhandle, patches of ice on the roadways will continue to be a hazard through at least friday morning.
    *what?...some areas of ice did not melt completely today and residual water will likely refreeze with the cold temperatures tonight. Ice can be hard to identify on roadways until you have already driven over it. Patches of ice will linger on the roadways, especially bridges, overpasses and on roads sheltered from the sun.
    *when and where?...patches of ice will linger through at least friday morning and possibly into friday night, mainly north of i-10 and especially along and north of highway 84. Inland county emergency managers have confirmed the ice on roads. So, slow down and use extra precaution if you must drive! In general, those areas that received the most snowmelt and freezing rain, which is generally over interior sections of southern alabama and southeastern mississippi, will continue experiencing patches of ice the longest, meaning over the next several nights. In shaded areas, ice will likely persist during the heat of the day friday afternoon and into friday night north of the highway 84 corridor. /dvb
