Freeze Warning in Effect Overnight on Friday

The National Weather Service has implemented a freeze warning for much of south and central Missouri during the overnight hours of Friday.

The freeze warning will be in effect from midnight until 9 a.m. Friday morning, with temperatures expected to drop below freezing as low as 28 degrees.

The risk of frost covers portions of southeast Kansas, as well as portions southwest, south central, west central and east central Missouri.

The National Weather Service encourages residents to take steps to prevent damage to pipes in the event of freezing overnight. Ensure pipes are drained or have a slow drip, and have your heat set to at least 60 degrees.
