Frost advisories tonight for northern, western suburbs
The National Weather Service has posted Frost Advisories for Maryland communities north and west of the urban corridor, and west to Cumberland. The advisories, effective between 3 a.m. and 9 a.m. Saturday, include Howard, Montgomery, northern Baltimore counties.
The advisories mean that frost is possible tonight, and sensitive plants may be killed if left uncovered.
Colder temperartures are expected in mountainous counties in northern and western Virginia, where Freeze Warnings have been issued.
The overnight forecast for Baltimore calls for lows near 38 at BWI-Marshall, and 35 degrees in Westminster.
UPDATE, 8 a.m. Saturday: We caved. The heat is on. It was 64 in the house when we finally got in Friday night. So we flipped the switch. Now it's 33 degrees out on the WeatherDeck, and there is frost on the pumpkin - literally. But it's toasty inside. Thanks, BGE. We owe you.
