With temperatures expected to drop below freezing Wednesday night and Thursday morning, the National Weather Service has issued a freeze alert for the mid-valley.

Forecasters at the weather service's office in Portland said lows around 30 are expected and that colder, wind-sheltered valleys may dip into the mid- to upper 20s.

The alert is in effect from midnight Wednesday to 8 a.m. Thursday. It's in effect for the inland valleys of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington, except areas near in or near the western Columbia River Gorge, where winds likely will keep temperatures above freezing.

Forecasters said the cold temperatures could kill or damage sensitive vegetation. People in the area covered by the freeze warning are advised to harvest or protect tender vegetation. Potted plants normally left outdoors should be covered or brought inside away from the cold.
