Forecasters say temperatures will dip into the twenties to around 30 early Saturday.

The onset of below-freezing temperatures will occur either Friday evening or early Saturday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, a freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are likely... and these conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
