Prepare For Winter! Duluth, Superior Area to Receive First Freeze of Fall Season
Fall officially began on September 22 and soon the Northland will receive its first widespread freeze of the season.
After a windy Sunday, the National Weather Service in Duluth says overnight temperatures will soon be dropping to the point where residents should start preparing for winter.
The National Weather service shared that reminder, as well as a forecast update, throughout the weekend on their Facebook page.
The first widespread freeze of the fall season is expected early this week. Temperatures could fall to the freezing mark or colder on Monday night and especially Tuesday night.
When it comes to preparing for winter, the National Weather Service says it important to do the things we often overlook until it's too late. These tasks include

- Take in plants that you want to overwinter indoors
