First Alert Weather Day: Freeze likely Thursday morning
Many areas will get a season-ending freeze tonight.
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Today is a First Alert Weather Day. Many of us had frost this morning, and many more will tonight. Temperatures in the low 30s will be cold enough to damage or kill tender plants and your cool season vegetable seedlings.
Low temperatures again tonight/tomorrow morning will reach the low 30s in many areas.
If we hit 32 degrees tonight, it would be the earliest recorded freeze in 20+ years in Richmond! The average date of first freeze at RIC is November 1, and that date has been getting later on average because of global warming. But even in a warming world, we can still get occasional early season cold blasts.
This cold snap won’t last, thought. After Thursday morning, temperatures will steadily climb with no more cold outbreaks in sight through the end of the Month.
