Frost Advisory Ends at 9 for Alpharetta, Milton

Portions of north and western Georgia saw temperatures dip into the low 30s overnight, according to the National Weather Service.

Alpharetta, Milton and the rest of North Fulton are under a frost advisory, with the National Weather Service warning residents on Thursday to cover or protect sensitive vegetation.

The frost advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. today, as the temperature was expected to drop to 35 degrees. By 6 a.m. it had risen to 38 degrees, according to WeatherBug.com. The high should reach 67 degrees today

But expect more patchy frost Saturday morning, too, between 3 and 9 a.m. The National Weather Service forecast predicts a low of 36. It will be warmer during the day, with a high of 71 degrees. Veterans Day will stay warm with a high of 68, but starting Monday it will be cooler and rainy.

"Areas of frost and freezing temperatures are expected tonight across north and central Georgia," the National Weather Service's forecast states.

Just west of Milton in Cherokee County, residents have been told to expect freezing temperatures, and the forecast includes a freeze warning, so local residents should take the same cae with sensitive plants normally kept outside.

A freeze warning is set for portions of northern and western Georgia, including Cartersville and Bartow County, early Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

"Cool, dry pressure will continue to build in the area into Friday, resulting in clear skies and light winds," the warning says. "Temperatures overnight will drop into the mid 30s across north and central Georgia and into the low 30s in the northern and western portions of the state."

A freeze warning means freezing temperatures are forecast to threaten outdoor plants. Those with agricultural interests in the warned area are advised to harvest or protect tender vegetation.

Friday's high should reach the high 60s.
