The predicted low for Shelton tonight is 30 degrees.
Crops in danger
“The sub-freezing temperatures will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation,” the NWS said.
As of 4 p.m. in Shelton, the temperature is 46 degrees — but it definitely feels much colder due to consistent winds and darkish skies. Not a nice afternoon for a walk — especially without a heavy coat.
