James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist gave us a heads up on Facebook that “temperatures will drop below freezing Friday morning over the northern and central counties of Alabama. We project a low in the 27-32 degree range for most places. For colder pockets, temperatures could be below freezing for over 6 hours late Thursday night and early Friday morning. This is not unusual for early April... in fact, long time readers know my advice every year. Don't plant anything that will be harmed by a freeze until April 15.”

For our listening areas, you can expect Frost between 1 am and before 9 am on Friday. Temperature values could change as we get closer to Thursday night.

These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
