Will May weather wither April flowers?
You'd really dig this, were it an April Fool's joke that got lost in the e-mail and arrived the last day of the month.
But it's not: A frost advisory is in effect from midnight tonight to 7 a.m., according to a National Weather Service advisory out today. Yes, frost -- the cold stuff that comes when fall heads toward winter -- is arriving as April turns into May.
Temperatures are expected to dip into the mid-30s between midnight and 7 a.m. That will result in areas of frost, the weather service said. The advisory applies to southeast Providence, eastern Kent, Bristol, and Newport counties.
Not digging it? At least you won't be plowing through inches of cold stuff on May 1. That's according to what the weather service advisory says, anyway. (Rhode Islanders know to never tempt fate).
The weather service reports that a cool Canadian air mass "will continue to overspread" southern New England tonight.
People with "agricultural interests" are advised to harvest or protect tender vegetation.
Potted plants normally left outside should be covered or brought inside.
