Overnight lows in the mid 30s could lead to the first frost of the fall season for central Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The National Weather Service offices in Louisville and Jackson have issued a Frost Advisory for portions of central and eastern Kentucky.

Overnight lows will drop into the mid 30s, allowing for frost to potentially develop in sheltered valleys where temperatures will briefly drop closer to the freezing mark. Frost could kill or damage sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.

Frost Advisory

The average first frost of the fall season  occurs between October 21st – 31st in the Lexington area. The average first freeze of the fall season occurs between November 1st-10th. A hard freeze is where temperatures drop below freezing for an extended time which threatens seasonal vegetation. A “soft” frost occurs when temperatures drop near freezing for a brief time, this is more likely to occur in protected valleys where colder, more dense air settles.
