Brief break from the warmth in the Southeast; overnight freeze possible

Christopher Nunley

Parts of the Southeast have been quite warm over the past several days but a brief break from the warmth is expected as a cold front continues to slowly move south. The cold front will lose some of its punch but will still bring a cooldown to many areas over the next few days. While high temperatures won’t be abnormally cold, it’ll feel colder because it’s been so warm, and there is the possibility of some areas falling to freezing Sunday night through Tuesday night.

Tennessee, most of Mississippi, central & northern Alabama, central & northern Georgia, and most of the Carolinas have the chance to see temperatures either fall to or below freezing and/or have the possibility of a frost Sunday night through Tuesday night. While this doesn’t pipe burst nor is it record cold, it’s cold enough to hurt or kill sensitive vegetation. With temperatures so warm last week, it’s possible some people have planted gardens or flowers, so if this is you, make sure you protect the vegetation with this brief cool snap.
