Well this week it will finally feel like late October. It’s been looking like late October, just not feeling like it.

We have a freeze watch in effect for late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. If there’s anything growing outside that you care about, last call.

...Freeze watch in effect from late Tuesday night through
Wednesday morning...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a freeze
watch...which is in effect from late Tuesday night through Wednesday
morning.

* Locations...much of eastern Pennsylvania, portions of New Jersey
  into parts of both northeast Maryland and far northern Delaware.
  This freeze watch does not include the urban centers near
  Philadelphia.

* Temperatures...lows are expected to range within several degrees
  of 30 early Wednesday morning over the Countryside. Frost or
  freezing temperatures are forecast within the watch area. 

* Timing...coldest temperatures should occur between 6 am and 730
  am Wednesday, with frost or freezing temperatures possibly
  beginning as early as midnight in the normally colder sheltered
  valleys. 

* Impacts...the upcoming seasonably cold frost or freeze event
  will probably end the growing season in parts of this area,
  especially near and north of Interstate 78 inclusive of the
  Lehigh Valley. If and when warnings or advisories are issued,
  protective action should be considered for sensitive outdoor
  plants.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible.
These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
