BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - We have a FIRST ALERT for the first freeze in areas north of the I-20 corridor. Colder air is setting in with the wind out of the north at 10 to 15 mph. This will add to the chill Tuesday morning with low in the 30s.

Plan on jacket weather throughout the day, with highs only in the low 50s. The cold air will continue to pour into the region throughout the day with a north wind at 10 to 20. The sky will be sunny again on Tuesday.

The freezing temperatures can be expected area-wide Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, with frost likely. In fact, some areas will tumble into the middle to upper 20s, with subfreezing temperatures possible. This will be our first big freeze threat of the season, which is about 3 to 4 weeks ahead of schedule. Be sure to protect the plants, pipes, pets, and check on friends and family, the elderly, make sure everyone has a warm shelter for the falling temperatures.

We will start off in the freezing range again Thursday morning, with dry weather continuing through the middle of the week. Temperatures will rebound to near average by the weekend, with highs in the 70s, and lows in the 40s. I’m expecting beautiful weather for the weekend, with lots of sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday. The next chance for showers will return around Monday night and Tuesday of next week.
