After the North Fork got its first dusting of snow this morning, even chillier temperatures are in store for tonight. The National Weather Service issued a freeze warning from 10 p.m. tonight until 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Temperatures are expected to plumet into the lower 20s, according to a NWS alert. The freezing temperatures will kill sensitive vegetation, the alert said.

A cold front that swept through the area in the early morning hours today resulted in a mix of rain and snow — and eventually just snow — falling over the region. The snow persisted through the morning commute, from about 6 a.m., and tapered off about 10 a.m.

No precipitation is forecast overnight. Tomorrow’s high temperature is forecast at 40 degrees. The temperatures are expected climb to a high of 55 for Friday and Saturday.
