Freeze Warning Issued for Harris County
What is the danger?
The National Weather Service is forecasting a rapid drop in temperatures overnight into Sunday as an Arctic cold front moves through the region. Morning low temperatures will be in the high 20's near Brenham to 32 degrees closer to the coast. A Freeze Warning has been issued through 10:00 AM Sunday morning. Temperatures are expected to fall below freezing again on Sunday night.
A Freeze Warning means that sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
What you need to do:
Residents are advised to take basic steps 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.
