A frost advisory is ahead as temperatures fall across MA

A frost advisory is ahead as temperatures fall across MA”

If frost does form this week, outdoor plants could be damaged.

Patchy frost is possible Monday night and Tuesday night for most of Northern Virginia, particularly away from urban areas and away from tidal waters, according to the National Weather Service in Sterling.

The reason for the sudden change in air mass is a cold front pushing off the coast today. Clear and cold, but with some clouds along the coast.

Northerly winds will continue to pump in cool air throughout the day Monday, with most areas topping out in the mid-50s Monday afternoon. "This extended dry period, although it's lovely to have, we do need rain".

The weather for the rest of the week looks awesome. Temperatures will fall into the 30s across the region, allowing for widespread frost by Tuesday morning. If we had seen more significant rainfall over the past month I would be more excited for the nice weather. Temperatures are going to drop into the 30s overnight in the far north and west suburbs, leaving open the possibility that teeny tiny ice crystals could form on plants, grass and cars by tomorrow morning.

A cold front pushes off the coast with a line of showers Monday morning.

Tuesday: A quick warm-up to 80 degrees under mostly sunshine. Sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s are likely. Highs near 70 with sunshine.
