Alabamians will be waking to a chilly reception this week.
Meteorologists have issued a freeze watch for Tuesday night through Wednesday morning for most of central Alabama.
Forecasters said a high pressure system moving into Alabama likely means temperatures will fall below freezing.
A freeze watch means subfreezing temperatures are possible.
The colder air mass could damage crops and other sensitive vegetation.
A lake wind advisory also is in effect until 6 p.m. Monday.
