...A FROST ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY THURSDAY

MORNING...

AN UNSEASONABLY CHILLY AIR MASS WILL CONTINUE TO PREVAIL ACROSS THE

AREA. SKIES ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME CLEAR TONIGHT WITH LIGHT WINDS.

THE COMBINATION WILL CAUSE EXCELLENT RADIATIONAL COOLING CONDITIONS.

FROST IS EXPECTED TO FORM LATE TONIGHT AND BE FAIRLY WIDESPREAD IN

RURAL AREAS AND COLDER LOW LYING AREAS IN THE SUBURBS. IF YOU HAD

FROST TUESDAY MORNING, YOU SHOULD EXPECT MORE LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY

THURSDAY MORNING. EVEN LOCATIONS THAT DID NOT HAVE FROST TUESDAY

MORNING MIGHT SEE SOME THURSDAY MORNING.

THERE MIGHT EVEN BE POCKETS OF LOW TEMPERATURES AT OR BELOW THE

FREEZING MARK IN NORTHWEST NEW JERSEY AND THE POCONOS.

PEOPLE WITH AGRICULTURAL OR GARDENING INTERESTS IN THE ADVISED AREA

SHOULD PROTECT TENDER VEGETABLES AND FLOWERS WITH PROTECTIVE

COVERING OR DOUSING THEM WITH WATER. ALSO, POTTED PLANTS NORMALLY

LEFT OUTDOORS SHOULD BE BROUGHT INSIDE AWAY FROM THE COLD.

THIS SHOULD BE THE LAST NIGHT THAT THIS PRESENT UNSEASONABLY CHILLY

AIR MASS AFFECTS US. BUT IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR ADDITIONAL FROST TO

POSSIBLY OCCUR DEEPER INTO THIS MONTH IN COLDER AREAS OF

PENNSYLVANIA AND NEW JERSEY.

STAY TUNED TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR YOUR LOCAL MEDIA OUTLET FOR

FURTHER DETAILS OR UPDATES.

Driving to work this morning (Wed) I saw an athletic field in Cranford covered in frost! My Heliotrope and purple bell vine were out on the back porch. Fortunately there was no damage. I really don't want to bring all 80 pots inside.

I put all my tomato seedlings back in the hay trailer. But it is better then loosing them. 10 boxes to just move all of them.
