Widespread temperatures of 32 degrees or colder are likely across the area. The coldest temperatures are expected to occur in northeast Nebraska, where temperatures may fall into the mid to upper 20’s. Temperatures may fall below freezing for severe hours. This would be the first freeze of autumn in many locations, and would mark the end of the growing season for crops and sensitive vegetation.
A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible. These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
