It was another cold Thursday morning with temperatures falling into the 30s and 40s. While most of us stayed above freezing this morning, a few communities in Northeast Alabama did fall to or below freezing this morning.

We will have a brief break from the cold weather overnight with temperatures only falling into the low 50s. A cold front will move through on Friday and that will bring cooler weather back to the area for the weekend.

Another freeze will be likely over the weekend. Morning lows will drop below freezing to almost 20 degrees below normal for this time of the year.

Even though it will be turning cold again, it’s not uncommon to see this type of weather in mid-March. Looking back at climate records, freezes have occurred as late as April and May. The latest spring freeze on record in Huntsville is May 7 from 1944. The latest spring freeze in Muscle Shoals is May 2 in 1909.
