People out early Wednesday morning should keep an eye out for frost and frozen surfaces.

The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning that will be in effect from 2-8 a.m. Wednesday.

More from NWS:

* WHAT…Sub-freezing temperatures near 30 expected.

* WHERE…Portions of The District of Columbia, central, northern and southern Maryland and central and northern Virginia.

* WHEN…From 2 AM to 8 AM EDT Wednesday.

* IMPACTS…Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.

People with plants outside should cover them.

“To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly,” according to NWS. “Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above- ground pipes to protect them from freezing.”
