WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Another frosty night, then warmer and quite nice Friday


* Frost advisory from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. for much of the immediate area and east *

It’s definitely sunny side of the sidewalk season. After a start around freezing in many spots, high temperatures were near 60, which is a bit warmer than recent days, but there was still a bit of a “wind chill” at times — felt most in the shade. This cold air mass is moving on, but first it’s offering another night of frost and freeze potential across the region.

Tomorrow (Friday): After a nippy start, we’ve got a gorgeous end to the workweek. You might even consider slipping outside to enjoy some time in the abundant sunshine. Highs are mainly in the mid-60s, and winds are light from the west-southwest.

Pollen update: Tree and weed pollen join hands with mold spores at low levels. Grass pollen is absent.

See ya, plants: If you’re in the western part of the area, you’re not under frost advisory or freeze warning for the first time in recent nights. It’s not that it won’t be as chilly as other spots but that the growing season has been declared over.

Local counties that saw their growing season end, per the National Weather Service, include Fauquier, Frederick, Loudoun, Prince William, Frederick and northwestern Montgomery. Although not all spots saw temperatures reach freezing in these areas, your flower’s days are still numbered.
