The cold front that brought severe weather to parts of the South over the past two days has opened the door for an unseasonably chilly start to the workweek.
High temperatures across much of the South will be more than 10 degrees below normal on Monday with some places being as cold as 20 degrees below normal.
On top of the below-average temperatures, a northerly breeze will cause AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures to be even colder.
To calculate the RealFeel®: temperature, AccuWeather.com uses multiple factors including the temperature, humidity, cloud cover, sun cover, sun intensity and wind to explain how hot or cold it feels outside.
Not only will high temperatures during the day on Monday run below average, but so will the temperatures on Monday night. Widespread subfreezing temperatures are expected southward to Charlotte, N.C., Augusta and Columbus, Ga., Tuscaloosa, Ala., Hattiesburg, Miss., and areas just north of Baton Rouge, La., and Houston, Texas.
Places where temperatures are set to dip below freezing should cover any plants that are already starting to grow outside.
Temperatures will remain below normal through Tuesday and Wednesday as this cold Canadian air holds its ground across much of the eastern United States.
During the second part of this week, temperatures will finally start to return to near normal across the South.
