Here we go. Cold weather is upon us. With skies clearing, radiational cooling will sink temperatures in the northern and western counties tonight, while dew points fall into the mid-30s.
So the National Weather Service has posted Frost Advisories for Maryland from Garrett County east as far as Frederick County, effective between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m. EDT Wednesday morning. A low of 38 is forecast for Deep Creek Lake tonight. The frost advisory may expand eastward into portions of Carroll, Howard and Montgomery counties.
"A FROST ADVISORY MEANS THAT FROST IS POSSIBLE. SENSITIVE OUTDOOR Do you know where your potted palms are? Your windshield scraper?
PLANTS MAY BE KILLED IF LEFT UNCOVERED."
