Freeze Warnings Issued as Temperatures Fall



    For the second night in a row, freeze warnings were issued Friday night for seven of the state's eight counties as temperatures are expected to once again drop to unseasonable lows.

    Freeze warnings were issued for early Saturday morning in every county except Litchfield. Many areas of the state fell into the 20s overnight.

    Warnings were also issued overnight Thursday into Friday after snow showers and even some sleet and hail moved through parts of the state.

    The air is about 15-20 degrees colder than usual this time of year, according to Chief First Alert Meteorologist Brad Field. The National Weather Service is urging residents to cover outdoor plants to protect them from the cold.

    We'll see a bit of a warm up going into the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will be 60 degrees with some cloud cover.
