The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a freeze watch for Brevard County and Indian River County. The warning is for Feb. 4, 2021, from 1:00 am until 8:00 am.
People living in Sebastian, Grant, Barefoot Bay, Micco, Roseland, Fellsmere, Wabasso, and Vero Beach may have temperatures anywhere from 31 to 34 degrees tonight.
“Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes, they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing,” The National Weather Service said.
A Small Craft Advisory remains in place across the St. Sebastian River, Indian River Lagoon, and the Sebastian Inlet through this afternoon due to northwest winds of 15 to 25 knots and seas 6 to 8 feet nearshore and up to 11 feet offshore.
Also, near-critical fire weather conditions are expected this afternoon and will continue through Thursday due to dry conditions.
