Frost Advisory for Owensboro and the Tri-State
In the Ohio Valley, as they say (and they're very nearly correct), if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes.
Well...how about a week and a half.
Last week, we broke the bank, in terms of record high October temperatures, when we soared into the upper 90s to kick off the month.
Fast forward 10 days or so, and we're looking at a frost advisory for the region.
And here's the official advisory from the National Weather Service:
URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE National Weather Service Paducah KY 228 PM CDT Fri Oct 11 2019 ...Frost is possible late tonight... .In the wake of a strong cold front, much cooler air will spread across the region tonight. High pressure should be over the area early Saturday morning. With lows anticipated to be in the lower to mid 30s, and winds relaxing and becoming light due to the high pressure system, frost may form tonight. We are about two weeks ahead of when the normal first frost of the season is. Frost will be most likely in outlying and sheltered areas. Some areas may see little or no frost. It should burn off quickly early Saturday morning, shortly after the sun is up.
