Freeze watch tonight
The Sterling National Weather Service office has issued a freeze watch for tonight for the areas shaded in blue in the above graphic. This means that the air temperatures tonight could drop below 32 degrees (F) in these areas and create widespread freezing conditions for the first time this autumn, effectively ending the growing season and endangering outdoor vegetation. You might want to either bring in or cover up those fragile plants tonight!
