HOLT, Nov. 19, 2016—The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a freeze watch for late Sunday night through Monday morning.
Temperatures are expected to drop as low as 28 degrees in this area.
Tonight’s lows are expected to be in the mid-to-upper 30s. Isolated pockets of freezing temperatures are possible, according to the NWS.
A freeze watch means it is possible for sub-freezing temperatures to occur that could damage or kill crops or other types of vegetation.
Outdoor pets and plants could be affected by the drop in temperature, so people should take the proper precautions.
In addition to the cold temperatures, the NWS has issued a hazardous weather outlook for northwest Florida.
The service is predicting the front bringing the colder temperatures will also bring gusty northerly winds today and tonight.
And as always, due to the lack of rain for the past eight weeks, there’s the possibility of fire. However, with high winds, there is an enhanced fire danger Sunday through Tuesday, according to the NWS.
