Brrrr! It's Cold!: A frost advisory remains in effect until 9 a.m. this morning. The temperature recorded nearby is 34 degrees at 5 a.m. – though my deck thermometer says 42 degrees. I think I need some better insulation or better windows! The National Weather Service in Peachtree City issued a freeze watch, which is in effect from late Friday night through Saturday morning.
Temeperatures are in the 30s this morning and Friday morning, but watch out for Saturday morning when they will fall to the mid-20s to near freezing.
Remember to protect those sensitive outdoor plants, and bundle up the children – and yourself – when heading out.
