Dramatic changes in the weather have taken place between Thursday and Friday. Thursday's high of 79 with sunshine has been replaced by cloudy skies, rain, and much cooler temperatures. Friday's high ended up being only 51, though most of the day has been spent in the upper 40s.

The cold front that has brought rain and clouds to the region will slowly push east tonight. Expect clearing skies, with the stage set for widespread frost. Here's a look at expected overnight lows for the next week:

If you're still tending the garden and want to protect it, cover it up before going to bed. Better yet, bring plants inside, if possible. Remember, there will no longer be frost advisories issued from the NWS for our area due to the growing season ending after September's frost.

We'll be dealing with frost again Saturday night, before the weather warms up and turns unsettled heading into next week.
