EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - The coldest temperatures in over eight months will return to the Texas Forest Country tonight, as we will endure our first, widespread freeze of the fall season.

As a result of the onset of our first freeze this season, freeze and hard freeze warnings have been issued for all our counties and communities in Deep East Texas through the mid-morning hours on Friday.

With clearing skies, light winds, and very dry air in place, we will see overnight lows bottom out in the middle-to-upper 20's.  Many areas will see sub-freezing temperatures for ten to twelve hours, starting around the mid-evening hours and continuing through 9 am on Friday.

Therefore, make sure to cover and bring inside your tender plants or vegetation, especially any that may be sensitive to the cold weather.

Also, make sure to provide extra blankets and bring inside your furry friends.

Finally, it may be a good idea for you to wrap your pipes.  Even though this may not be a pipe-busting type of freeze, another surge of Arctic air will bring even colder temperatures to the Piney Woods by the middle of next week.  By having the pipes wrapped now, you will save yourself some time and effort for future hard freezes that may arrive later on this fall and winter season.
