Cold Air Coming to Alabama

By Associated Press

Huntsville, AL – National Weather Service meteorologists say the season's coldest air will settle across the Tennessee Valley region Tuesday night. The chilly air will spread into central and southern counties by Wednesday.

Colder air and blustery winds will produce conditions that make frost likely. Temperatures will dip into the 30s with some locations dipping below freezing.

Meanwhile, people are urged to be careful in how they heat their homes. Space heaters must be used properly and should be placed at least three feet from anything that can catch on fire. Candles should never be unattended and fireplaces should be used only with a screen.

Also, furnaces should be checked regularly. And all homes should have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Another reminder -- protect tender plants from the cold air.
