Episode Narrative Very light winds, no cloud cover, and a high pressure system over the Tennessee Valley produced an optimal situation for strong radiational cooling. With cold and dry air in place over the area behind a departed cold front, temperatures dropped below freezing for several hours across northern Alabama as a result. Temperatures ranged from 24 or 25 degrees in the coldest locations to around 31 degrees in other locations.
Event Narrative Temperatures across Colbert county dropped to the freezing mark or below for at least 3 hours. Low temperatures countywide on the morning of the 29th were primarily between 27 and 32 degrees. Both the Muscle Shoals Airport ASOS and 1 other nearly site bottomed out at 27 degrees.
