PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Don’t be fooled by that bright sunshine – the days of record heat in March are over as much more seasonal temperatures make a comeback.
KDKA-TV Meteorologist Dennis Bowman reports that a freeze warning is out for the surrounding Pittsburgh area Monday night into Tuesday morning.
As the growing season is about five-to-six weeks ahead of schedule, you now have to be concerned about tender vegetation that will be affected by the cold weather.
Sub-freezing temperatures will be in place from 2 a.m. to 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, as temperatures will reach below 28 degrees Fahrenheit for at least three hours.
Flowers, crops and tender vegetation can be damaged or killed if protective measures are not taken.
People are advised to cover their plants tonight to avoid damage.
