As strong Canadian high pressure settles into the region from the north, scouring out our clouds and drawing in some drier air, we’re looking at a perfect situation for a colder night in our area. In fact, a Freeze Watch has been issued for the majority of our viewing area meaning lows will be around freezing and some locations may drop into the upper 20s, allowing for a hard freeze to affect early spring vegetation. Here’s the official statement from the National Weather Service:
WITH LIGHTER WINDS AND COOLER AIR OVER THE REGION TONIGHT... FREEZING TEMPERATURES COULD BE MORE WIDESPREAD. CONDITIONS LOOK VERY FAVORABLE FOR FREEZING TEMPERATURES NORTH AND EAST OF INTERSTATE 94 TONIGHT...THEREFORE...A FREEZE WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED IN THIS AREA. FREEZE WATCHES REMAIN IN EFFECT ELSEWHERE... WHICH MAY BE UPGRADED TO WARNINGS LATER TODAY IF CONFIDENCE IS HIGHER THAT FREEZING TEMPERATURES WILL OCCUR.
