Washington Co., WI – Have you turned your heat on yet? Tonight, may be the night as the National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning until 10 a.m. Monday, October 30.
Sub-freezing temperatures with low 20s to 30s are anticipated. There may have even been some flurries in the air this evening.
The National Weather Service said frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.
Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To 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.
