Frost Advisory tonight, cover plants

Although it was cold last night with patchy frost, a more severe FROST ADVISORY has been issued for Allegany and all neighboring counties in New York and Pennsylvania, other than Livingston, for 1AM, to 7AM or 8AM, Friday, depending on location.

Temperatures then will rise, with day-time highs nearing or exceeding 80 degrees locally, under sunny or mostly sunny skies for the weekend and into next week, according to current forecasts.

National Weather Service offices at Buffalo, Binghamton, and State College, Pa., are projecting tomorrow morning’s chill, which could kill sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.

Steps should be taken to protect tender plants, hanging baskets, and other outdoor flowers and vegetables.
