Frigid Weather

Jan. 18
Expect another night in the deep freeze across Alabama.

The National Weather Service says arctic air will send temperatures plummeting for the second night in a row. Tonight's lows will again hover in the low to mid 20s across much of Alabama.

Meteorologists reminds residents NOT to forget to take precautions to prevent water pipes from freezing.

Their suggestions include covering all outside exposed pipes, leaving faucets dripping overnight, setting heat no lower than 55 and cutting off water if pipes do freeze.

It is also a good idea to check on the elderly and bring outside pets inside on extremely cold nights.

A hard freeze warning is in effect for southeast Alabama.

There's some good news as the week winds down -- highs will climb into the upper 50s and 60s on Wednesday and Thursday.
