Freezing Temperatures North of Interstate 10 Friday Morning
What is the danger?
The National Weather Service is forecasting a strong cold front may drive temperatures below freezing for 2-9 hours on Friday morning. The greatest risk of freezing weather will occur north of Interstate 10 and residents in that area are urged to take basic precautions against the impacts of extreme cold.
What you need to do:
Cold weather preparation is easy – just remember to protect the “Four P’s”: People, pets, pipes, and plants.
Protect yourself from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning by installing a battery-operated CO detector and never using generators, grills, camp stoves, or similar devices indoors.
It is also recommended that you prepare your car for winter. Have your car serviced and add antifreeze as needed.
