Temperatures ahead of this morning's cold front were in the low 70s around 3:00 am but it has been a steady drop in temperatures since and this will continue through tonight. The entire afternoon will be in the 40s and combined with gusty winds it will feel more like freezing by 6:00 pm tonight. Make sure the kids have jackets for trick-or-treating.
Actual air temperatures will drop to or below freezing for most of North Alabama Friday morning. The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning through 9:00 am Friday. Take care of sensitive plants that could be damaged or killed by frost or a freeze.
