FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Sensitive plants will be in danger in Fairfield County for the third night in a row as the National Weather Service has issued a Frost Advisory for coastal towns on Friday from 1 to 9 a.m.
Temperatures will once again dip down close to freezing in much of Fairfield County and a few degrees below it in northern parts of the county. Mostly clear skies and not much wind will create favorable conditions for frost to form, according to the advisory.
The northern part of Fairfield County is not under a frost advisory, but there is still the chance it could form in patches in those towns.
The National Weather Service recommends that sensitive crops and plants should either be covered, or, if possible, brought inside for the night.
The sudden spring cold snap will finally start to ease on Friday with temperatures reaching a slightly more seasonable low to mid-50s. After a weekend in the high 50s, temperatures in the 60s are expected to return at the start of next week.
