Freeze Warning Tonight Issued for Meriden

Overnight temperatures could dip into the mid-20s tonight before dawn.

 

A freeze warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for Meriden and northern New Haven County from about midnight tonight to 9 a.m. on Saturday.

The warning notes temperatures as low as the mid 20s tonight could kill garden vegetables and houseplants that are left outdoors.

A report in the Wall Street Journal notes that tonight's temperatures in New Haven could be three degrees colder than the record cold of 1981. "That kind of frigidity is similar to the average lows southern Connecticut experiences in the first week of December, almost two months from now," the report stated.
