MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The first day of spring included record cold for the Gulf Coast. Mobile’s morning low dropped to 29° Monday morning which broke a daily record that stood for 100 years. Pensacola experienced a freeze too with an observed low at 30°.

Temps will fall to near again freezing overnight Monday into Tuesday for our northern counties where another FREEZE WARNING is in place.

Remember to practice those 5 P’s of cold weather safety: Protect your plants, people, pets, pipes, and with dry conditions expected for much of the first half of the next week, it will be very important to also practice fire safety.

Fortunately, we will have a warming trend with our temperatures through the end of this week.
