The watch includes the cities of Byrdstown, Cookeville, Livingston, Jamestown, Allardt, Sparta and Crossville.
Freezing temperatures in the low 30’s can be expected in the watch area. Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.

Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
