Temperatures will plummet Sunday night, prompting a 'Freeze Warning' from the Portland National Weather Service beginning 1 a.m. through 10 a.m. Monday morning.

The warning is widespread throughout western Oregon and Washington, with temperatures in the region forecast to drop as low as 22 degrees overnight. 

“Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation, and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing,” the agency said in their waning. 

Areas above 1,000 feet, such as Timber and other coast range areas such as the summit on Highway 6 can expect the coldest temperatures, the NWS said.
