With clear skies overnight, temperatures sink to the low 30s in many spots Monday morning, with outlying areas likely falling into the upper 20s. Widespread frost is almost certain for the entire area, and many locations will also see their first freeze of the season. For that reason, all of North Alabama is under a Freeze Warning until 8 AM Monday morning. This means that freezing temperatures could kill plants or vegetation and potentially damage outdoor plumbing. Be sure to protect any sensitive plants. Outdoor exposed pipes should be fine sense this is not a hard freeze but is a good reminder to start prepping those pipes for winter.
The cold air sticks around into Monday afternoon, with highs only in the mid 50s despite lots of sunshine. Looking ahead to Election Day, it will be another chilly start to the day Tuesday with widespread frost likely once again. We'll warm up a bit through the afternoon, however, as highs top out in the mid 60s. The warming trend continues into late next week, with highs back in the 70s by Thursday.
Rain chances are close to zero the next seven day forecast, so enjoy this beautiful Fall weather while we have it!
