The Tri-State area is getting an early taste of winter following an unseasonably warm fall.
A freeze warning is in effect from 6 p.m. Friday until 8 a.m. Saturday for New York City, Westchester, Long Island and parts of New Jersey.
Intensifying winds and dropping temperatures will make it turn sharply colder Friday with a record low tonight of 24 degrees. A record low temperature of 28 was set back in 1933.
Saturday will stay cold with a high around 38 before warming back into the 40s on Sunday.
Forecasters say the low temperatures will put an end to the growing season, killing crops and other sensitive vegetation.
