ANOTHER FREEZE WARNING TONIGHT: Lows tonight will fall back into the upper 20s and lower 30s, so more frost/freeze issues are expected tomorrow morning, and another Freeze Warning has been issued for much of Alabama overnight tonight and into tomorrow morning. And of course, the map also shows the numerous river flood warnings that continue due to all the recent rains.
