Weather demands a wardrobe change. A freeze warning the next two nights with 12-15 hours of below-freezing temperatures and lows in the 20s. We sprang ahead on the clocks but the thermometer falls back. A wind advisory goes into affect as well, so it will FEEL like it’s in the 30s all day due to the wind chill factor.

Bad news for all the early budding and blooming plants with a killing freeze. Furnace and fireplace weather will be with us for a few days with the coldest air in 2 months.

Be prepared to take precautions to protect plants, pets, pipes and vehicles Wednesday and Thursday mornings from winter level temperatures with a hard freeze.

WEDNESDAY AM MODEL LOWS:
