Freeze warning issued for Friday morning

For the first time this season a freeze warning has been issued in southeast Wisconsin. The warning is in effect for all of our local counties from 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. Friday morning.

Temperatures Friday morning will fall into the low 30s. Areas right near the lakefront, like Milwaukee, may stay just barely above freezing but spots just a few miles from the lakefront, like West Allis, could be below freezing. Most inland communities will hover between 30-32*. 

A hard freeze, also known as a killing freeze, happens when the low falls to 28*. It's possible that some of our inland spots get that cold which will end the growing season. Once the growing season ends, the National Weather Service will stop issuing frost advisories and freeze warnings. 

The cold for Friday morning is just the beginning of a period of cold morning lows. There will be multiple chances for frost and freeze through the beginning of next week. If some spots don't get down to 32 or colder Friday morning there will be another chance Monday morning.
