CORNWALL, Ontario – Environment Canada has issued their first Frost Advisory of the season for Cornwall and SD&G on Wednesday, Oct. 2.

“Frost may damage some crops in frost-prone areas,” the Advisory from Environment Canada reads. “Temperatures will drop to near the freezing mark overnight tonight over these regions. Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees. Frost advisories are issued when temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark during the growing season, leading to potential damage and destruction to plants and crops.”

According to The Weather Network temperatures in Cornwall and the surrounding area over night on Wednesday will feel as low as 3 degrees Celsius.

Temperatures will be back up in the 20s and teens over the weekend and at the beginning of next week.
