Might want to let the water drip on those faucets. Also, make sure the pets are inside. Check on the elderly neighbor too and make sure they’re comfortable. It’s going to get really cold, the National Weather Service says.

NWS put out a freeze warning that will remain in effect until 10 am Tuesday morning, Nov. 18. The advisory says, “Strong north winds will usher in a very cold air mass tonight. This will result in freezing temperatures in the 20’s and lower 30’s for much of north and central Georgia tonight.”

It could also mean “dangerous wind chills” in the higher elevations of north Georgia, “That could result in frost bite and hypothermia if precautions are not taken.”

So take precautions and stay warm. There will be another round of very cold weather in store on Tuesday evening as well, NWS says.

“Although temperatures should warm above freezing between 10 am and noon on Tuesday, the warm-up will be short lived as even colder temperatures in the teens and 20’s will return to much of the area …,” NWS says.

The low Tuesday night is expected to be 21 degrees. Brr.
