Chilly weather is expected tonight as a north wind brings cold
air down from Canada.

Also, clear skies will help our temperatures
drop down quickly. These are perfect conditions for frost to develop,
mainly in the higher elevations.

A Freeze Warning is issued for Northern Herkimer County from midnight
tonight until 9am Tuesday morning. Temperatures are expected to be in
the upper 20s to lower 30s.

A Frost advisory is issued for Northern Oneida and Lewis counties tonight.

Temperatures are expected to reach
the lower- to mid-30s. Put a sheet over sensitive outdoor plants, and
bring any potted plants indoors.

Also, you should close your windows
before you go to sleep and turn on the heat or use a space heater.

Seeing our first frost this time of year isn't unusual. The average
first frost date for the Adirondacks is Sept. 20. The average
first frost date for the rest of the North Country is Sept. 26.
The average first frost for the Southern Valleys is Sept. 27.
The average first frost date for the Mohawk Valley is Oct. 2. It
is likely that we will see a frost tonight in the Adirondacks and
North Country, which is only about one-two weeks ahead of the average
first frost date.
