Hard Freeze Warning in Montgomery County
Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
Montgomery County will be under a Hard Freeze warning starting tonight after 9pm. Temperatures will get down below 24 degrees (thus considered ‘hard’ freeze) between the hours of 12 midnight to 4am, our area will not begin to warm up to above freezing temperatures until around 9:00am tomorrow morning. Areas in the freeze warning along the coast are looking at freezing temperatures for about 6-8 hours from midnight to 8AM. Areas in the hard freeze warning can see temperatures below freezing about 11-13 hours from 9PM tonight to 9AM Wednesday. No precipitation is expected for our area, so no effects to morning commutes are expected.
Remember your 4 P’s of Winter Weather Conditions:
PEOPLE: Keep your family warm and check on any elderly family or neighbors that may need extra blankets, winterizing their homes or a warm place to stay.
PETS: Dogs and cats get cold too. Bring them inside at night to keep them healthy and safe.
PLANTS: Either cover plants to keep them warm at night or bring them inside so they can flourish.
PIPES: Cover exposed pipes to prevent freezing and breaks.
The Montgomery County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will continue to monitor the upcoming weather conditions, and provide updates as conditions change.
