Frigid Weekend Ahead, Freeze Warning In Effect Friday Night Into Saturday

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — It’s a chilly Friday, and temperatures are expected to dip even lower this weekend.

The windchill is making it feel like it’s freezing outside in Baltimore Friday afternoon, and a Freeze Warning went into effect at 7 p.m. and will last until 10 a.m. Saturday.

“This is the first taste of this kind of cold weather that we’ve had since March,” Meteorologist Tim Williams says. “A Freeze Warning means that temperatures in the 20s and sub-freezing temperatures are very likely, likely will kill all vegetation out there, all tender vegetation.”

Marty Bass says the weekend temps will have more of a January feel than a November feel, with highs of 41 on Saturday and 49 on Sunday.

Saturdays high and low temperatures will be identical to that of the average on January 10, Bob Turk says.

And the 19-degree foretasted overnight low could tie or break a record set in 1973.
