A freeze warning covers most of Alabama as arctic air approaches the area.

The National Weather Service says the warning will be in effect Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Forecasters say temperatures are expected to fall into the middle and upper 20s both mornings.

The warning covers cities such as Birmingham, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Anniston, Gadsden, Opelika and Troy.

Forecasters say the freeze should bring an end to the growing season across central Alabama.
