While much of the Northeast is experiencing unseasonably warm fall weather, parts of the Midwest are under Freeze Warnings and Frost Advisories Friday evening into Saturday. 

The following breaks down what to expect and how to prepare before the cold sets in.

Portions of the Midwest Prepare for Frigid Weather 

Locations under a Freeze Warning: 

  • Northeastern North Dakota 
  • Northwestern Minnesota
  • Northern South Dakota 
  • North Central Kansa 
  • South Central Nebraska 
  • Southeastern Colorado 
  • Southwestern Kansas 

For those living in the locations listed above, the National Weather Service warns against sub-freezing temperatures as low as 27℉. 

Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops and other unprotected vegetation, so people are encouraged to take preventative measures now. For example, these frozen outdoor water pipes need to be wrapped or drained to prevent bursting with temperatures. 

The Freeze Warning is in effect from midnight until 10 a.m. MDT Saturday. 

Locations under a Frost Advisory: 

  • Southern Minnesota 
  • Southeastern South Dakota 
  • Northwestern Iowa 
  • Eastern Nebraska 
  • North Central Kansas 
  • Southwestern Kansas 

The Frost Advisory runs from 2–10 a.m. CDT on Saturday. The main concern involves temperatures dropping below 32℉, resulting in frost formation. This frost will be deadly to vegetation if not protected.
