FORT WORTH — The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has placed Cherokee County into a group of Central and East Texas counties that are included in a Freeze Watch.
The watch is in effect from late Thursday night through Friday morning.
Temperatures could drop down as low as 28 to 32 degrees officials say.
Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.
A Freeze Watch means that the season's first episode of wide-spread sub-freezing temperatures are possible.
It is recommended to protect tender vegetation, and to turn off outdoor sprinklers to avoid the potential for ice build up on roads, driveways and side walks.
