Freeze Warning in Effect for Much of Hard-Red Winter Wheat Country

A freeze warning is in effect for much of the southern Plains including the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles and much of southwestern Kansas, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures are expected to fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s throughout the night for much of the region that stretches from central Kansas through the Texas Panhandle, the NWS said. Some crops could be damaged if temperatures stay low enough for long enough, the agency said.

Some rain is expected in parts of the Ohio Valley and northeast as a storm that had brought rain to parts of the southern Plains moves east. Smoke from wildfires will reduce air quality in parts of Ohio and Kentucky today, according to the NWS.
