Sunday night will be the coldest of the season so far in Southeastern New England. Most of the area has already had their first freeze of the season, except for SE RI which is under a Freeze Warning issued by the National Weather Service. The temperature will fall below freezing in most spots, and it should be cold enough to end the growing season in the areas that have not had the first freeze of the season. A Freeze Warning is also in effect for Long Island and coastal CT.
