BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - Temperatures will be dropping into the 30s across the area tonight. They will likely drop to or below the freezing mark in higher valleys to the east of I-79. These temperatures could kill crops or other sensitive vegetation. This is the definition of a Freeze Warning which is in effect for Barbour, Harrison, Nicholas, Randolph, Taylor, Upshur, and Webster counties.
Lows should stay above the freezing mark for most of the lower elevations. However, some of the low spots where cold air pools up may drop closer to it. So, widespread frost in those locations is expected. This is the definition of a Frost Advisory.
With clear skies and light or calm winds tonight, temperatures will drop to these cold lows. Once the sun comes up, we'll raise our temperatures well above freezing and frost will melt and any danger to plants will be over. This should occur at or before 10:00am Tuesday. The end of the time frame for both the Advisory and Warning.
