Freeze Warning: What Exactly Does It Mean?
It has only officially been fall for a few days but the weather wasted no time making it feel as though it's been here forever. Sigh.
It's going to be a chilly weekend with our low Friday night (September 28th) dropping into the upper 20s. Brrrrrrr. That's not all, though - we will also see a Freeze Warning overnight.
Obviously that means we will be cold but let's dive into it a little bit more to learn exactly what we will be seeing lots of this fall.
According to weather.gov, a freeze warning is issued when "significant, widespread freezing temperatures are expected."
A Freeze Warning is issued in the fall until the end of the growing season, which falls in mid to late October. However, the site says it may last a little bit longer if it is unseasonably warm. They are also issued in the spring when growing season begins.
A Freeze Watch is issued when there is potential for widespread freezing temperatures within the next 24 to 36 hours.
As of Friday morning, the Freeze Warning for the Northland will start at 10 p.m. tonight and continue through tomorrow morning at 9, per WDIO Meteorologist Taylor Dayton.
Don't forget to bring your pets and plants inside and dress appropriately.
Stay warm and maybe watch a scary movie!
