The most powerful cold front of the season is now to our east.  Fierce winds and dropping temperatures were left in the front’s wake.  Highs today will be the lowest we have seen since the beginning of March.  We are expecting lows tonight to be the coldest they have been since the beginning of February.   Therefore, the National Weather Service has posted FREEZE WARNINGS for most of the viewing area starting at 11:00pm tonight, lasting through 10am tomorrow morning.   Here are the details:
