Another Cold One: Frost Advisory for Saturday morning!

A nice Friday afternoon turns into another cold night; low temperatures fall into the low-30s under a clear sky.  That’s why the National Weather Service in Huntsville posted a Frost Advisory for some counties in North Alabama:

A few counties are left out of the advisory, but the usual cold spots even in Franklin and Colbert Counties could get some frost!

…Frost Advisory in effect from 2 AM to 8 AM Saturday…

* temperatures…In the 33 to 36 degree range for most of the
Advisory area. However, a few locations in southern middle
Tennessee may briefly fall below freezing.

* timing…From 2 am to 8 am Saturday.

* impacts…Frost could harm sensitive outdoor vegetation.

* locations…Portions of north central, northeast and northwest
Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee.

Precautionary/preparedness actions…

A frost advisory means that widespread frost is expected.
Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.

As a reminder, we never recommend all-out Spring planting (gardens, etc.) until after April 15th!

AFTER THE FROST: Saturday looks beautiful: great for anything outdoors from sports to yard work to just spending some time outdoors! Expect a sunny day: highs in the mid-60s with a light northeast.

Some showers move in on Sunday, but our next ‘good’ chance of rain comes in on Monday.
