A freeze warning is in effect from late Monday night into early Tuesday for Mississippi and Alabama.
The National Weather Service in Jackson, Miss., has issued a freeze
warning. Cold surface high pressure will settle over the region Monday night and under clear skies and calm winds, temperatures are expected to fall
to or just below the freezing mark.
Freezing conditions look only to last for 1 to 3 hours as readings bottom out between 30 and 33 degrees area-wide. Areas of frost can be expected as well across the entire area.
A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or
highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
The National Weather Service in Birmingham said overnight lows are expected to fall into the lower 30s in many locations by morning, with temperatures in some of the protected and normally colder locations falling into the upper 20s.
Freezing temperatures will last up to several hours in these colder locations to just briefly in warmer locations. Even where temperatures do not fall below freezing, patchy frost is also expected.
A lake wind advisory was also in effect for Alabama. It indicates that winds will cause rough chop on lakes. Small boats will be especially prone to capsizing.
