1-First freeze of the year may come Tuesday or Wednesday morning as colder air filters in from a surface high that will settle into the area. If we don’t hit 32 degrees, we’ll be close. If I was guessing, based on guidance, I would say we will be close. We’ll see what happens. Rain is still in the forecast for this weekend so we’ll hope it occurs here. We’ll see!
