The confidence in seeing temperatures dip below the freezing mark overnight tonight and early Saturday morning is high. This has prompted the issuance of a Freeze Warning by the National Weather Service in Albany, NY, for the Capital Region. This warning is in effect from 11 PM Friday night to 9 AM Saturday morning.
Freeze warnings are issued by the National Weather Service to alert the public that a widespread frost is likely. Tender vegetation and crops will be adversely affected by such conditions, and thus, the end to the agricultural growing season appears imminent. Take precautions now to protect any remaining outdoor vegetation from the effects of the low temperatures.
Overnight low temperatures tonight are forecast to range from the mid 20’s to near 30 across the area. For comparison, the record low for Albany, NY tonight is 24 degrees, set in 1981.
