Part 3 is the Freeze Watch until May 21 at 9 AM for Harding, Perkins, Butte, Meade, Central & Eastern Pennington, Ziebach, Haakon, Jackson, Bennett, Oglala Lakota, Fall River, and Custer in South Dakota. In Wyoming; All of Campbell and the lower elevations of Crook and Weston County. Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops, other
sensitive vegetation. Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above- ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
