BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - North Alabama should begin thawing out after a slippery, icy morning.

Authorities asked people to stay at home early Thursday after a winter storm dumped snow and ice across most of the region Wednesday evening. Forecasters predicted some areas could get 6 inches of snow and even more overnight.

Roads were slick across a wide area, and many school systems and government offices closed for a third straight day.

But temperatures are supposed to warm to 40 degrees and higher on Thursday afternoon, and forecasters say sunnier skies should help melt away the frozen precipitation.

Temperatures will dip to the freezing mark again late Thursday, but high temperatures are predicted near 60 degrees on Friday.
