National Weather Service issues freeze warning

After the North Fork got its first dusting of snow this morning, even chillier temperatures are in store for tonight. The National Weather Service issued a freeze warning from 10 p.m. tonight until 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Temperatures are expected to plumet into the lower 20s, according to a NWS alert. The freezing temperatures will kill sensitive vegetation, the alert said.

A cold front that swept through the area in the early morning hours today resulted in a mix of rain and snow — and eventually just snow — falling over the region. The snow persisted through the morning commute, from about 6 a.m., and tapered off about 10 a.m.

No precipitation is forecast overnight. Tomorrow’s high temperature is forecast at 40 degrees. The temperatures are expected climb to a high of 55 for Friday and Saturday.
