Frosi arid freeze warnings were posted for Minnesota and Wisconsin and northern portions of Illinois, Iowa and South Dakota as temperatures dipped into the :K)s and upper 20s.

But pre-dawn temperatures were predicted in the mid-30s. The earliest recorded frost warning for the city was on .Sept. 25,1*12. The cool air. spreading southward was also expected to displace the 80 and 30 degree readings with highs in the 60s. Little rainfall accompanied the passage of the coolec^'air. although light thunderstorms lingered over coastal sections of Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. Others were scattered through the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. - ' The most rainfall recorded Sunday was a quarter of an inch at Macomb. Miss. Torrential rains from earlier, in the weekend... however, forced the evacuation of more than 100 families from their, homes in Mountain City, Tenn., because of flash flooding. The high waters also washed out electric and telephone service for most oftheday. , The NWS said for (he first time in more than a month 'there'were more cities in the nation with clear raiher than cloudy skies. Most of 'the existing cloudiness was over the Atlantic and Gulf Coast stales. None of the frequent clouds and fog could be found over the Pacific Coast.
