The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Freeze

Monday. The Freeze Watch is no longer in effect.

  night into Monday morning.

* WHERE...Portions of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois,
  southwest Indiana and western Kentucky.

* WHEN...From late Sunday night through Monday morning.

* TEMPERATURE...Will fall to below freezing in many areas by 11 PM
  CST.

* Impacts...The freeze Monday morning will likely end the
  growing season across the entire region.

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.

A Freeze Warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or
highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other
sensitive vegetation.
