First Alert: Frost advisory early Friday
Frost Advisory now through Friday morning
GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Cold air settling over the region will combine with calm winds to bring inland parts of Eastern North Carolina frost near sunrise Friday. Highest frost potential will occur for inland areas away from the immediate coast. The frosty conditions will run primarily from 3am to 8am Friday. The National Weather Service has issued a Frost Advisory for most of the area.
While unusual for this late in the season, when it occurs it does pose a concern for plants and crops. A hard freeze, with actual air temperatures dropping below freezing is not expected for most areas. The average date of last frost is the end of March, so this will be a very late season frost.
