Could be a frosty night in the Sault


Warm days and cool nights. That’s the weather situation for the next few days. Environment Canada has issued a frost advisory for the area. That doesn’t mean there’s going to be frost but the conditions are favorable for frost development.

Frost advisory in effect for:

Agawa – Lake Superior Park
Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island
Searchmont – Montreal River Harbour – Batchawana Bay

Frost may damage some crops in frost-prone areas.

A large arctic high pressure area settling in over Northeastern Ontario will set the stage for frost in many areas tonight.

Under clear skies, temperatures will dip to close to the freezing mark overnight with patchy frost likely into early Saturday morning.

Cover up plants, especially those in frost-prone areas.

Frost advisories are issued when temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark during the growing season, leading to potential damage and destruction to plants and crops.
