The warning was issued by the National Weather Service Thursday morning ahead of very cold temperatures dropping into the teens across the region. A few locations dropped into the single digits.

Hard freeze conditions often result in damage to exposed pipes and additional water main breaks are possible.

Power outages continue across portions of the region, leaving some without means of heating their home and increasing the risk of frozen indoor plumbing.
Any ice that melts on roads during the day today will re-freeze, leading to dangerous travel conditions tonight.

The NWS recommends you take steps now to make plans for how you will remain warm Thursday night. To prevent additional freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly.
