Temps drop tonight leading to chance for frost

Posted: Updated:

A frost advisory was issued for part of the state overnight, as we are in for some of the chilliest overnight temperatures we have seen in a long time.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said temperatures are expected to drop to between 32 and 42 degrees overnight, and said frost is likely in the normally colder valleys.

After the frosty overnight, Monday is expected to be a nice day with plenty of sunshine.

Temperatures will reach the upper 60s to near 70 degrees during the afternoon hours.

Cameron said clouds will move in as the evening goes on.

Rain is on the way for Tuesday morning.

“An area of low pressure will be dragging a cold front into the northeastern U.S. from the Great Lakes,” Cameron said.

Rain will begin sometime before dawn on Tuesday, and will linger into the afternoon.

“Most model runs are now tending to agree that we can expect an average of 0.5” to 1.0” of rain from this system,” Cameron said.

Skies will become gradually clearer Tuesday night. Lows will be in the 50s.

The weather will be dry for Wednesday, but there may be periods of some unsettled weather starting on Thursday.
