    Plunging Lows Threaten Freeze for Washington DC, Charlotte

    Cold temperatures in the Midwest and Northeast will sneak as far southward as northern Georgia to start the week.

    On Sunday night, temperatures dipped to near freezing as far south as Tennessee and North Carolina.

    The threat for a freeze, and even frost, will shift eastward for Monday night into the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.


    More southern cities that will be affected include Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Maryland.; Richmond, Virginia; and Charlotte, North Carolina just to name a few.

    Temperatures will plummet into the lower 40s south of the Mason-Dixon Line, making temperatures feel more like early April, rather than May.

    As a result, precautions should be taken to protect warm-season plants that have already been planted.
