a hard freeze warning remains in effect this morning for all of southeast alabama…south georgia…and north florida…except florida panhandle coastal communities where a freeze warning remains in effect…

a hard freeze watch is in effect tonight for much of south-
central georgia east of the flint river…and portions of north florida east of the ochlockonee river…while a freeze watch is in effect elsewhere…

temperatures are falling steadily this morning…despite winds remaining slightly elevated. confidence is still relatively high that winds will calm within an hour or so of sunrise and allow several locations across the tri-state region to dip to hard freeze levels. tonight…with the calm center of the surface ridge still forecast to be in place over our eastern cwa…conditions remain favorable for another hard freeze…of longer duration…in these locations. just how far west the hard freeze will spread is a little uncertain. thus a watch remains in effect and will likely be refined and upgraded later today.
