“A freeze warning is issued when sub-freezing temperatures are forecast to threaten outdoor plants. Those with agricultural interests are advised to harvest or protect tender vegetation. Potted plants outdoors should be covered or brought inside,” the NWS said.

FOX 8 meteorologist Scott Sabol predicts we could have a hard frost Wednesday night and a light freeze Sunday night. There’s even a chance for a wintry mix this weekend.
