Mostly clear skies will drop temperatures close to or below freezing tonight for most, leading to conditions that could harm or kill sensitive plants. Cool temperatures are expected to linger through midweek with periods of showers possible as well. A slight warmup is expected into the weekend with better chances for rain and possibly a few thunderstorms coming on Saturday.

Widespread frost and freezing temperatures are expected tonight into tomorrow morning. Below freezing temperatures are most likely roughly along and north of a Dixon to Rensselaer line (excluding the city of Chicago and some adjacent communities), but frost will be possible area-wide. If you have sensitive plants, cover them up or bring them inside tonight!

...FREEZE WARNING NOW IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 8 AM CDT
WEDNESDAY...

* WHAT...Sub-freezing temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s
are expected.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest Indiana and north central and
northeast Illinois.

* WHEN...From midnight tonight to 8 AM CDT Wednesday.

* IMPACTS...Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other
sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor
plumbing.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent
freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should
be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have
in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-
ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
