HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Authorities said more than an inch of snow fell has fallen across many parts of Alabama, with areas near Fort Payne picking up 1.5 inches.

DeKalb County's emergency manager told the National Weather Service that higher amounts fell on Lookout Mountain and roads were slick in some spots.

The weather service reported that around an inch of snow had fallen by Tuesday evening in Jackson County -- with higher amounts in mountain areas -- based on reports from the emergency manager there.

Schools altered schedules Tuesday and roads quickly turned to slush as the snow moved into northern Alabama.

Officials said travel problems could linger into Wednesday, with temperatures expected to rise only into the mid-30s in north Alabama, followed by overnight lows in the low 20s.
