The National Weather Service on Monday afternoon has increased freeze watches covering most of the region to freeze warnings, reflecting a higher level of certainty that freezing temperatures will affect vegetation overnight.
The freeze warning takes place from 1 to 10 Tuesday.
Light weather, like spring at the end of last week, has moved out and freezing temperatures are on their way back.
The National Weather Service has issued frozen watches for upstate New York, including all of the Cayuga Territory.
The watch goes into effect Monday night and lasts until mid-Tuesday morning. Temperatures are estimated to drop to 28 degrees in some areas.
Watches include the following countries bordering Cayuga: Seneca, Onondaga, Wayne and Oswego.
“Freezing and freezing conditions can kill plants and other sensitive vegetation,” the National Weather Service said. “Take steps now to protect soft plants from cold air. Vegetation that is sensitive to cold can be closed or brought in if possible to protect from cold and freezing.”
