Monday Outlook

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “today will be mostly sunny with a cool northwest wind of 10-20 mph; the high will be in the 66-71 degree range over North Alabama, with mid-70s for the southern counties of the state.” Also, he talked about tonight how a “freeze warning has been issued for areas along and north of U.S. 278... north of a line from near Hamilton to Cullman to Gadsden. Temperatures here will drop into the 28-32 degree range; a north wind of 7-14 mph will keep frost from becoming too widespread. Temperatures will drop into the mid to upper 30s down into South Alabama.”

Tuesday Outlook

“The day will be sunny, breezy, and very cool with highs only in the 52-58 degree range over the northern half of the state, with low 60s for the southern counties. We will be close to setting new record low maximum temperatures,” said Spann.

Preparedness Actions from National Weather Service

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
