Southwest Georgia is in for a couple of freezing nights before temperatures are expected to warm up later in the week.
The National Weather Service in Tallahassee, Fla., has issued a freeze warning for Southwest Georgia for tonight, which forecasters say the low should dip to 27 degrees. After hitting a high on 48 on Tuesday, another freeze is expected, also with a low of 27.
The freeze warning goes onto effect at midnight tonight and last until 10 a.m. Tuesday. A freeze warning means that temperatures will be below freezing for 5-9 hours. Weather officials say the cold will be enough to damage some crops and sensitive plants.
Weather forecasters say a warming trend is likely to start Wednesday, with projections of highs of 63 Thursday and 60 on Friday, with showers and possible thunderstorms to the area Thursday night and Friday. After that cold front passes, temperatures are expected to cool again with highs in the 50s and lows in the lower to mid 30s.
