Winter is coming to the South and Southeast

A polar air mass will move into the South and Southeast tonight into the weekend. This will deliver the coldest air of the season, allowing many areas to see frost and freeze, so technically, you could see the white stuff on the ground this weekend. The white stuff won’t be snow, but it will be frost so you want to make sure you protect the plants, pets, and outdoor exposed pipes. Join the Firsthand Weather Supporter Group today!

The cold front will move through the Southern Plains and into the South tonight. This will deliver a freeze and frost for some areas as early as tonight, with most areas seeing a freeze and frost Saturday night. Because of this, a Freeze Warning, Freeze Watch, and Frost Advisory have been issued for a good chunk of the region.

Freeze and frost alerts for the South and Southeast

Most of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, eastern Tennessee, and parts of North Carolina are under a Freeze Watch for Saturday night. This will likely be upgraded to a Freeze Warning on Saturday. The Freeze Watch is the purple shaded areas on the maps below. It should be noted, the front moves through Mississippi sooner so there’s a Frost Advisory in northern Mississippi for tonight. The Frost Advisory is the light blue shaded area. Temperatures in the Freeze Watch will likely fall between 28-32 degrees Saturday night. Join the Firsthand Weather Supporter Group today!

Farther west, the cold air has moved into the Southern Plains already. Because of this, there is a Freeze Warning tonight for northern Texas, most of Oklahoma, and western Arkansas. The Freeze Warning is the bright blue shaded areas. Temperatures will fall between 28-32 degrees tonight.

Please make sure you bundle up and take the proper precautions along with safe heating measures in your home. Join the Firsthand Weather Supporter Group today!
