A freeze warning is in effect from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m. Friday.
Sub-freezing temperatures are forecasted for several hours after midnight through sunrise Friday.
Low temperatures near 30 occur in most areas with upper 20s possible in typically colder locations.
The warning is for all of Southeast Michigan.
Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.
Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above- ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
