JASPER -- The National Weather Service has issued a FREEZE WATCH from Thursday evening into Friday morning.
Sub-freezing temperatures will bottom out in the mid 20’s Halloween night, so trick-or-treaters will need to bundle up.
Meteorologists warn frost and freeze conditions could kill sensitive vegetation and possibly cause damage to unprotected outdoor plumbing.
"Temperatures will be about 43 (degrees) at 5 pm to about 39 (degrees) by 7 or 8 pm. With 30 mph winds, it's going to be pretty cold, so make sure you keep yourself warm. Plus it's going to be rainy on top of all that," says National Weather Service of Indianapolis Meteorologist Mike Koch.
"By Friday morning, we're looking at temperatures around 28 and wind chill temperatures around 18, so the drive into work is going to be pretty miserable," Koch said.
