Temperatures in Lamar dropped below freezing just after 7 p.m. Wednesday and are expected to stay icy through early Friday afternoon.
There is a chance temps will warm to 36 Thursday afternoon but only briefly. Long exposure to cold is the worst scenario for pipes so take precautions. Drip faucets. Put lamps or other heat sources in well houses.
Also make sure to protect people, plants and pets until things thaw somewhat Saturday.
