This is one of the first Freeze Warnings for Victoria County that I can remember seeing this year. With the weekend rains and the cold front moving down into South Texas, we are in for some low temps overnight that will be below freezing in the Crossroads.

The National Weather Service has called for a Freeze Warning beginning at midnight tonight until 8 AM Tuesday for all of Victoria County and much of the South Texas Coast. Remember to take steps 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. Automatic sprinkler systems should be turned off to prevent icing of nearby sidewalks, roads, and driveways.

Temperatures of 29 to 32 degrees expected for up to several hours overnight across much of the area including La Salle, McMullen, Live Oak, Bee, Goliad, Victoria,
Duval, Jim Wells, Inland Nueces, Inland San Patricio, Inland Refugio, and Inland Calhoun Counties. Definitely turn off those lawn sprinklers before you go to bed.

Will we actually have to scrape our windshields in the morning this week? I suppose it's a possibility for some. Remember a spray bottle with 2/3 vinegar and 1/3 water can do the work for you. Most folks in Texas have stories about homemade ice scrapers they had to use maybe two or three times a year. Remember, it's not worth losing your debit card. Try finding a sturdy spatula in the kitchen if it really comes down to it. Hopefully, you won't need to worry about that at all.

I'm more worried about that smell that happens when you kick on the heat for the first time in the fall? All my smoke alarms are gonna probably go off. Keep warm friends! We'll be back to more seasonal temps at night by the end of the week.
