PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The days of 70-degree weather are gone: the first frost advisory of the season is here.
National Weather Service Pittsburgh has put in place a Sunday morning frost advisory.
The Frost Advisory has been expanded to cover Morgantown and the surrounding areas, meaning our entire forecast region is under a Frost Advisory. Now is the time to take action to protect vulnerable vegetation. #PAwx #OHwx #WVwx #MDwx pic.twitter.com/tBlmkwGABT

The advisory will be in effect from 2 a.m. until 10 a.m.
KDKA Meteorologist Kristin Emery says clear and sunny skies plus light winds will combine to create these chilly conditions.
Temperatures in Western Pennsylvania, as well as parts of Ohio and West Virginia, are expected to hit in the mid to low 30s.
Multiple counties will be affected, including Allegheny, Greene, Washington, Beaver, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, Butler, Clarion, Jefferson, Armstrong, Indiana, Westmoreland, Somerset and Fayette.
NWS Pittsburgh advises residents to cover “sensitive outdoor vegetation” that could be hurt with these plummeting temps.
Our average first frost in Pittsburgh occurs on Oct. 20, so this frost is coming in a little early than average.
