Expires 7:00 PM EST on November 12, 2019
Statement as of 2:13 PM CST on November 11, 2019

... Wind Advisory in effect from 3 am to 6 PM CST Tuesday...
... Freeze warning in effect from 6 PM Tuesday to 9 am CST
Wednesday...

* what... for the freeze warning, sub-freezing temperatures falling
into the 20s expected across much of the area with temperatures
right at freezing along the immediate coast. For the Wind
Advisory, north winds 10 to 20 mph with frequent gusts up to 30
mph expected across much of the area with winds of 20 to 30 mph
and higher gusts along the immediate coast.

* Where... portions of south central and southwest Alabama,
northwest Florida, and southeast Mississippi.

* When... for the freeze warning, from Tuesday evening to Wednesday
morning. For the Wind Advisory, from early Tuesday morning to
Tuesday evening.

* Impacts... frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other
sensitive vegetation, and possibly damage unprotected outdoor
plumbing. Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects. Tree
limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high
profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects.

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent
freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should
be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have
in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-
ground pipes to protect them from freezing.







Special Statement

Expires 9:00 AM EST on November 12, 2019
Statement as of 3:10 PM CST on November 11, 2019

... Strong cold front to bring sharply colder temperatures to all
of the region Tuesday with a brief wintry mix of precipitation
also possible across interior southeast Mississippi and southwest
Alabama early Tuesday morning...

A strong cold front will surge southward across southeast
Mississippi, southwest and south central Alabama, and the western
Florida Panhandle late tonight into early Tuesday morning.
Temperatures will turn sharply colder following the passage of the
front during the early morning hours Tuesday. The coldest
temperatures are expected across interior southeast Mississippi
and southwest Alabama, where readings may briefly fall into the
lower to mid 30s early Tuesday morning, before only improving into
the upper 30s to lower 40s by Tuesday afternoon. Early morning
highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s are expected along and east of
the Interstate 65 corridor, before temperatures gradually fall
into the lower to mid 40s during the late morning and afternoon
hours. Strong and gusty northerly winds behind the front will
result in wind chills in the 20s and 30s through the day Tuesday.

Rain will spread across the region along the front late tonight
into early Tuesday morning. There is a brief opportunity for a mix
of light freezing rain and a few sleet pellets across Wayne and
Choctaw counties in interior southeast Mississippi and southwest
Alabama for a few hours, mainly between 6 am and 9 am Tuesday
morning, before precipitation quickly ends. A few sleet pellets
mixing with the rain also cannot be ruled out across portions of
Perry and Greene counties in southeast Mississippi and Washington
and Clarke counties in southwest Alabama on Tuesday morning.
Recent warm temperatures should prevent light ice accumulation on
paved surfaces in Wayne and Choctaw counties early Tuesday
morning, though motorists may want to watch for localized slick
spots developing on elevated bridges and overpasses. Precipitation
will remain in the form of rain across the remainder of the area.

Winds should gradually diminish with clearing skies Tuesday
evening into Tuesday night. Record or near record low temperatures
are expected on Tuesday night. The first freeze of the season is
expected across the region Tuesday night with lows expected to
range in the lower to mid 20s roughly along and northwest of
Interstate 65, with upper 20s to lower 30s across the rest of the
region. The exception could be along the barrier islands, where
lows may only fall into the mid 30s.
