Freeze warning ends Sunday, big warm-up next week

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Old Man Winter is letting itself be known across the Mid-South yet again.

The National Weather Service placed the entire WMC Action News 5 viewing are under a Freeze Warning Saturday night. The warning started at 1 a.m. on Sunday and lasted through 9 a.m. So, as you head to church make sure you bundle up.

A freeze warning means that widespread freezing temperatures are expected. This could damage crops that might have been planted early. We also need to check on pets and elderly as this spring cold blast moves into the region.

After the frost and freeze hit Sunday morning, we will warm into the 50s by the afternoon with mainly sunny skies.

Sunday night, we will see lows dip into the 40s with cloudy skies and small rain chances. Winds will be out of the northeast tonight around 5 mph.

For those warm weather lovers, highs will reach near 80 degrees by the end of next week. Hopefully, this will be the last blast of winter for us this season, but only time will tell.
