Hard Freeze Warning issued February 19 at 9:56PM CST until February 20 at 10:00AM CST by NWS Shreveport LA

* WHAT...For the Hard Freeze Warning, sub-freezing temperatures
as low as 16. For the Freezing Fog Advisory, visibility less
than one mile in freezing fog.

* WHERE...Portions of northwest Louisiana and east and northeast
Texas.

* WHEN...Through 10 AM CST Saturday.

* IMPACTS...Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other
sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor
plumbing. Hazardous driving conditions due to low visibility and
potential frost on bridges.

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent
freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should
be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have
in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-
ground pipes to protect them from freezing.

If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of
distance ahead of you. Also, be alert for frost on bridge decks
causing slippery roads.
