Pre-Halloween frost advisory issued in DC area


The District and surrounding area could wake up to a frost Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a frost advisory for portions of Maryland, D.C. and Northern Virginia from 2 a.m. to 10 a.m. Sunday.

Gardeners and those with a green thumb should protect vulnerable plants from a potential frost. And anyone with a jack-o’-lantern out front should consider bringing it inside and safe from freezing temperatures — which could cause all that hard work to rot out, according to Smithsonian Magazine.

D.C. can expect temperatures close to 40, and the suburbs might get into the low 30s.
