...MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES RETURNING LATE TUESDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY WITH A LIGHT WINTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION ALSO POSSIBLE
LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO TUESDAY NIGHT...

An arctic cold front approaching from the west moves through the
area on Tuesday and ushers very cold air into the region. Isolated
patches of light wintry precipitation are possible over interior
southeast Mississippi and interior southwest Alabama late Tuesday
afternoon then across most of the area Tuesday night. While no
accumulation of wintry precipitation is expected, a light dusting
of snow in some locations cannot be ruled out.

Much colder air flows into the area in the wake of the cold front
with lows Tuesday night ranging from the upper teens well inland
to the upper 20s at the coast. A Hard Freeze Watch is now in
effect for late Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning
generally along and west of the I-65 corridor.  Wednesday night
will be a bit colder with mid teens well inland ranging to mid 20s
at the coast, and a Hard Freeze Watch may become necessary for
most of the area. Northerly winds near 10 mph will combine with
the very cold temperatures to create wind chill values of 5 to 10
over interior areas from late Tuesday night into early Wednesday
morning, and a Wind Chill Advisory will likely become necessary
for this portion of the area.

Residents across the region should make preparations for cold
temperatures late Tuesday into Thursday morning and also continue
to monitor the latest forecasts regarding the potential for light
wintry precipitation late Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night.
Stay tuned for additional updates from the National Weather
Service in Mobile and your favorite local media sources regarding
this developing weather situation.
