The National Weather Service at Baltimore/Washington has issued a Freeze Warning for much of the region from 3 a.m. through 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. Additionally, a Freeze Watch is in effect from 2 a.m. through 9 a.m. on Thursday.

A cold front pushed across the area today. Warm air in advance of the front enabled temperatures to rise into the mid and upper 60s this morning, but the mercury has been falling all day. At 10 p.m., temperatures were in the mid to upper 30s with a mixture of rain, sleet, and snow falling in the area.

As the front continues to push eastward, precipitation will come to an end overnight and the sky will begin to clear. Northwest winds will continue to overspread the area as well. By morning, temperatures will drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s. Sensitive vegetation may be damaged due to the freezing temperatures. By the late morning hours on Wednesday, temperatures will rise into the 40s.

Another freeze is possible on Thursday morning. With a clear sky and light winds, thermometer readings are expected to fall back into the upper 20s to lower 30s.
