WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – The National Weather Service out of Pittsburgh has issued a Freeze Warning for Eastern Ohio, The Northern Panhandle, and Southwestern Pennsylvania as temperatures will drop close to freezing.

Gloomy conditions for the weekend with showers, some snowflakes, and cooler air; a similar pattern continues as we begin the new work week.

Freeze Warning issued for Tuesday morning across the Ohio Valley.

The Freeze Warning goes in effect at midnight Tuesday and will last until 9 a.m. Tuesday.

A Freeze Warning means that temperatures will drop into the low 30’s, with most areas likely dipping below freezing for an extended period of time.

A freeze could kill any crops and sensitive vegetation. Take the time now to bring inside any potted plants and cover any flowers, crops, or vegetation that could get killed but frost. Baskets and tarps work best, but blankets could work as well. Just avoid using cotton sheets or blankets, as they more easily store water and will enhance the chance plants won’t survive.
