Missoula Faces August Weekend Frost Advisory
So, first we're put in the slow cooker and smoked. Now comes the chilled glazing process? Western Montana's series of kooky weather and nature issues continues.
The National Weather Service in Missoula has issued a Frost Advisory in effect from 2:00 a.m. until 8:00 a.m. Sunday (August 23). Temperatures Saturday night and early Sunday are expected to fall into the lower to mid 30s in some lower valley areas away from lakes.Even when the forecast low is 35 degrees, that temperature value does not apply to right next to the ground where a lower reading near 32 often occurs.
If you have sensitive plants near potential 32-degree readings, you may want to cover or move them inside.
Possible impacted areas include parts of Missoula and Bitterroot Valleys, along with the Kootenai and Cabinet regions.
