OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Time to bring those plants in.

The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for much of the eastern half of Nebraska starting Wednesday night and southwestern to northeastern Iowa starting early Thursday morning.

The service says temperatures will fall into the upper 20s to lower 30s across the region, with mid 20s across portions of central Nebraska and central Iowa.

The service says the freeze - the first this fall - will mark the end of the growing season for crops and other cold-sensitive plants.

Temperatures are expected to climb back into the upper 50s and 60s on Thursday.
