HIDE Special Weather Statement issued October 19 at 3:35AM EDT by NWS Blacksburg
...Patchy Frost Possible Early This Morning...
Patchy frost will be possible early this morning in valleys and
rural areas away from rivers. Temperatures in these locations are
expected to fall into the mid and upper 30s. While temperatures
are not expected to drop below freezing early this morning,
temperatures in the mid to upper 30s along with calm winds and
clear skies will allow for the formation of patchy frost. If
precautions have not already been taken to protect tender cold
sensitive vegetation or indoor house plants, you may wish to do so
as soon as possible. Otherwise, they could be damaged from the
early morning cold and patchy frost.
Temperatures are expected to be well above 40 degrees after 9 AM
EDT this morning.
