A frost advisory is in effect for 2-9 a.m. Thursday, so take steps to protect your outdoor plants today.
The National Weather Service in Peachtree City issued the frost advisory for Georgia mainly along and north of a line from La Grange to Forsyth to Warrenton, all cities south of Atlanta.
Low temperatures will range from the lower to middle 30s, according to the forecast.
A frost advisory means that frost is expected, according to the National Weather Service. Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.
Cover up those children going to school on Thursday, too. It's going to be 10 degrees cooler Thursday morning that it is this morning at 36 degrees.
A much colder and driver air mass will settle over the state today. This will lead to a lower relative humidity that may approach critical thresholds for fire weather concerns. A positive point is that moistures remain high in what would be fuel for those fires.
Don't put away the warmer clothing after Wednesday morning, however. The forecast predicts colder than normal temperatures will continue through Saturday morning. Patchy frost will be possible again across portions of North Georgia Friday morning, mainly at sheltered areas not susceptible to the higher winds. A frost advisory is possible.
But then on Saturday morning it will be the coldest, with temperatures in the North Georgia mountains possibly dropping to around 32 degrees for a few hours before dawn. Plan for a frost advisory and tell your friends living farther north that they should prepare for a freeze warning.
