MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Moisture looks to build for southern parts of Alabama into the early morning hours on Friday, all thanks to an area of low pressure that will move across the Gulf of Mexico. The moisture mixing with freezing cold air, has the potential to cause very light pockets of freezing rain. Caution is urged on bridges and overpasses, if travel is planned headed towards southcentral and southwest Alabama.
