FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Cooler temperates Sunday are just a precursor of what is to come: It will be a freezing night along coast Connecticut tonight, the National Weather Service warns.
With slow freezing temperatures predicted for some urban and coastal areas, a freeze warning is in effect from 10 p.m. Sunday until 9 a.m. Monday in lower Fairfield County, the weather service said.
Hazards include temperatures in the upper 20 and low 30s, and those freezing conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, bringing an end to the growing season in southern Fairfield County.
The growing season has already ended in norther Fairfield County after a recent killing frost.
Monday will be bright and sunny, with a temperature in the mid-40s, the weather service said.
