“Break out the fuzzy pants and blankets, it’s going to be real chilly tonight! Lows dip well below [the] seasonal average in the wake of our departing storm,” stated the NWS.

Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing. Take steps NOW to protect tender plants from the cold. And please be kind and bring pets indoors.

The NWS suggests doing the following to help prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes. “They should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.”
