The anticipated snowfall began to turn Madison County white Tuesday afternoon, with roads beginning to get slick. 

The National Weather Service in Tulsa, Okla., predicted that Madison County could get anywhere from 6 to 8 inches of snow before it ends Wednesday morning. Higher elevations in Carroll, Madison and Newton counties could see a foot of snow.

Huntsville Police Department Chief Todd Thomas around 5 p.m. Tuesday was asked if city streets were becoming a problem. “Yes, getting slick,” Thomas said. "Extremely slick. Drive very slow if absolutely necessary."

Area roads and highways were pretreated in anticipation of the snowfall. Rain began to fall Tuesday afternoon before transitioning to all snow late in the afternoon.

The Huntsville School District let students out early Tuesday afternoon. A scheduled home basketball game at the AT and Georgia Mae Smith Activity Center Tuesday night was moved to Saturday night.
