MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

Authorities advised drivers about snow and freezing roads Sunday night. They said caution will be needed as freezing temperatures cause slick spots. 

The Madison Police Department said the east side of Madison city near Slaughter Road had snow and roads were freezing at 10 p.m. Sunday. Roads had started to ice just west of Crestview on Old Madison Pike around midnight. Public works crews responded to both scenes. 

Athens Public Works will start putting sand on city bridges and around Athens-Limestone Hospital at 4:30 or 5 a.m. Monday unless Athens Police recommend starting earlier. 

Florence Police reported icing on overpasses. The Street Department sanded the roadways.

Alabama State Trooper Curtis Summerville said troopers are not experiencing significant hazardous road conditions as of Monday morning, but drivers should be cautious as there may be black ice patches.

Marshall County EMA said Highway 227 has numerous icy patches, so drivers should avoid the road if possible.

Madison County EMA has reported a dangerous icy patch in the southbound lane of Oakwood at Highway 53.
