...FREEZE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY EVENING THROUGH
WEDNESDAY MORNING...

The Freeze Watch from Monday evening through Tuesday morning has
been replaced with a Winter Weather Advisory due to the
anticipation of cold temperatures and accumulating snowfall.

* TEMPERATURE...Morning temperatures are expected to fall into the
  upper 20s with temperatures remaining below freezing for as
  much as 5 to 7 hours.

* IMPACTS...The cold weather could kill sensitive outdoor
  vegetation if left unprotected.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent
freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should
be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have
in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-
ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

A Freeze Watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible.
These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
