Cold weather checklist

From the National Weather Service in Brownsville.

The National Weather Service in Brownsville has provided a cold weather checklist. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 30s later today and remain there overnight into Tuesday morning.

“Feels like” temps will be in the upper 20s and low 30s, according to the national weather service.

The list is a reminder to check on the elderly, make sure your pets have shelter and heat and bring weather-dependent plants inside.

Be wary of space heaters. The checklist says to plug them directly into a wall socket an avoid using extension cords.
