Before noon tomorrow, we should be feeling the effects of cold arctic air bearing down on the Pine Belt. If you've been following the forecast any within the past week, everything has stayed right on track. However, there is one new development worth pointing out....
It appears that there's a good chance that the cold air may linger through all of Friday. That means Friday will feel much like Thursday, maybe even colder.
From Thursday evening until Saturday morning we will be under a hard freeze watch. A hard freeze watch is usually only issued when lows are below 20 degrees and highs do not get above freezing. While we will get below 20, I also believe we will climb above the freezing mark. However, because this "warm up" will only happen for a short period of time, the NWS, went ahead and included us in the watch.
