The National Weather Service is predicting unseasonably low temperatures for Friday night into Saturday. Their current forecast includes low temperatures (~11 degrees F) and windy conditions.
Residents are urged to shut off any outside faucets to avoid potential freezing and pipe ruptures. In addition, be aware that an open window or door can lead to internal pipes and water meters freezing. Stong winds can push open doors and windows that are not secured.
The forecast quick return to normal temperatures will also allow water to thaw and leak out of any pipes burst by the bitter cold.
Please consider taking a little preparatory action today and tomorrow to hopefully avoid what can be a big problem.
Enjoy the Veteran's Day holiday - be safe and stay warm!
