A Freeze Warning for Citrus, Hernando, Levy and Sumter Counties in the 10 News viewing region will be in effect from 2:00am to 8:00am tonight.
In these counties, temperatures will likely fall to 28 - 34 with only a light breeze through the night.
Make sure to bring potted plants inside for the night and cover any tender vegetation you would like to preserve through the night's cold. Also, don't forget to bring outdoor pets in too.
Friday night will likely run several degrees warmer but might be a more favorable night for patchy frost as the cold area of high pressure moves directly overhead.
Looking ahead... yet another cold front will pass through the area Sunday pushing in a reinforcing shot of even colder air. At this time, I believe next week could feature a harder freeze for our counties to the north with even a few spots closer in to the immediate bay area flirting with the lower to mid 30s. We'll keep you posted.
