First Freeze Possible Tonight

A freeze warning is in effect from 12am to 8am Sunday. Temperatures should drop down to about 28F (-2C) tonight. A freeze warning means that a hard freeze is likely. In our area, a hard freeze means that temperatures will drop into the upper 20's, around 28F, for several hours killing exposed vegetation. A hard freeze signals the end of the growing season.

The fall color has really exploded in the last couple of weeks. Although is map indicates that our color is "patchy," I'd have to say that we have reached our peak and by next weekend will be past our peak of color. Already, a lot of trees have lost all of their leaves.
