October 10, 2009 (CHICAGO) --
A freeze warning is in effect tonight for all of the Chicago area. Temperatures in the western suburbs could plunge into the middle 20's. If you want to save your plants, it might be time to bring them indoors.On Saturday temperatures struggled to get out of the 40's and people were bundling up. ABC7 Meteorologist Phil Schwarz says this is very abnormal. Normal high temperatures this time of year are around 65 degrees.
We actually reached the freezing mark Friday night into Saturday morning and it promises to be even colder overnight.
A freeze warning is in effect for the entire ABC7 area and it remains in effect until 9:00AM Sunday morning.
We're expecting a low of 30 here in Chicago, but it will be even colder in the western suburbs.
