With cold air moving in, a Freeze Warning has been issued for tonight.

An Arctic cold front moved through early this morning. Cold air will surge into the area today with windy conditions and highs only reaching the low 50s. Wind gusts will peak around 30 mph. With dry, windy conditions in the forecast for today we will be looking for an elevated fire risk.

With the growing season beginning and below freezing temperatures tonight, a Freeze Warning has been issued for our entire area from 11pm tonight through 10am tomorrow. Make sure you protect your tender vegetation, bring in the plants you can and cover those exposed to the cold. Also make sure you give your pets a warm place to stay or bring them inside as they get cold too.
