QUAD CITIES, IA/IL (KWQC) A freeze warning is in place for the entire TV6 viewing area from 9:00 p.m. Saturday through 9:00 a.m. Sunday.

Clear skies, calm winds and a cold air mass in place over the area will allow for overnight lows to fall into the 20s for the first time this season. Temperatures in this range will kill any plants left outdoors, so be sure to bring your potted flowers or vegetables inside if you want to extend their life. This hard freeze will end the current growing season for farmers.
