National Weather Service Issues Freeze Warning for Entire 106-1 KISS-FM Listening Area Thursday Night
Remember about a week ago with the high temperatures was in the upper 60's and the evening lows were somewhere in the vicinity of the mid-to-upper 50's? Hope you enjoyed it, because much colder weather is coming quick.
For those of us that have lived in Evansville our whole lives, these types of crazy temperature swings aren't really that surprising. After all, Autumn officially began back in late September, so it only took a month for the Tri-State to catch up. It also apparently only took us about a week to go from Fall to Winter.
According to the National Weather Service (NWS), a Freeze Warning means "sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely" for the warned area. The forecast for Thursday overnight into Friday morning is calling for temps in the mid-20's for areas north of I-64, and the upper-20's to lower-30's for those of us south of the interstate. Widespread frost is also expected to take place during the warning hours of 1am to 9am.
If you haven't kicked on the heat yet, you might want to go ahead and do that. It probably wouldn't hurt to throw an extra blanket or two on the bed either. If you have outdoor plants, either bring them inside if possible, or cover them the best you can as the low temps will likely cause a "killing freeze" to most outdoor plant life.
