If you've got the outdoor plants, garden, etc, you might want to cover them or just let Mother Nature finish what the fall temps have started.

The National Weather Service has issued our first Freeze Warning for the Tri-Cities and Lower Columbia Basin, which will begin between midnight Friday night, and 9am Saturday morning.

Temps are expected to reach 30 degrees for Tri-Cities, cold be a tick colder up towards Connell, Mesa and Yakima.

After another cold night overnight Saturday into Sunday (35) overnight temps heading into next week will be in the very low 40's. Fall is here, winter not that far off?
