Even with Halloween in the rear view mirror, tonight's forecast will be frightfully cold. A Freeze Warning is in effect for the Pine Belt tonight, from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. for most locations. Remember to protect your plants and bring your pets indoors as temperatures reach the freezing mark tonight.
Also, be sure to set your clocks back one hour! We'll get one extra hour of sleep, or at least one extra hour to stay in our warm beds!
Patchy frost will be possible before sunrise tomorrow, but despite the cold start, highs will reach the low to mid 60s by the afternoon. Very dry air will continue to move in from the north, enhancing our fire risk. Take necessary precautions to prevent forest and grass fires.
Temperatures will gradually warm as the week progresses and will feel seasonable in the mid 70s by midweek.
