Frost Advisory in 4 Counties Cold Kill Your Plants Overnight
Hoodie and bonfire weather is coming at us in a hurry. Remember when it was super hot this summer and you overheard someone complain about the heat? Guess what, that same person is going to miss that heat and complain about the cold temperatures instead. Go ahead and put those summers away for 6 months. Our friend Joey Marino, a meteorologist at Eyewitness News spilled the beans (cold beans) on a sudden burst of cold which we are all ready feeling now.
Joey says we will probably wake up to the first frost of the season.
How much we clear out tonight is one of them, along with how much our winds do lessen. But temperatures overnight are expected to sink down into the mid 30s for most, with a few isolated spots in the low 30s to start.
This frost advisory is from 3 a.m. until 9 a.m. and there is probably another right around the corner.
Another frost advisory is possible across a more expansive area overnight Friday into Saturday morning.
Obviously, you will want to make sure your plants are covered otherwise it'll be the end of the growing season.
Some tips for keeping your plants alive through this possible freeze you should do more than just use a sheet, according to GardenKnowHow.
For added protection when you protect plants in a freeze, you can place plastic over the sheets or blankets to help keep warmth in.
