(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – With morning temperatures falling into the 20s, a Freeze Warning is in effect for the tri-state until noon Wednesday.

The National Weather Service is already calling for a Frost Advisory to be in effect from 2:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Thursday. Temperatures will warm into the 50s on Wednesday before plummeting to near-freezing overnight.

As they have the past couple nights, the weather service recommends that sensitive outdoor plants be brought indoors to avoid risk of being damaged or killed.

It’s the latest reminder of the brutal winter that was one for the Tri-State’s record book. The National Weather Service says the half-inch of snow that fell Tuesday was enough to make the winter of 2013-2014 the second snowiest on record in the region.

Forecasters say this year’s snow total of 47.5 inches is still more than six inches off the all-time record set in 1978.
