Fairfax County might get a little frosty overnight, in case the yellowing leaves outside weren’t a clear enough signal of autumn’s arrival.

The National Weather Service has issued a Frost Advisory for the D.C. area, warning that temperatures are expected to dip into the 30s, starting at 2 a.m. tomorrow (Wednesday).

…FROST ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM TO 9 AM EDT WEDNESDAY…

* WHAT…Temperatures around 33 to 36 degrees will result in frost formation.

* WHERE…Portions of central, northeast, northern and southern Maryland, The District of Columbia and northern Virginia.

* WHEN…From 2 AM to 9 AM EDT Wednesday.

* IMPACTS…Frost could kill sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.

“Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold,” the NWS says.

As of 1:30 p.m., the NWS forecast for the county indicates that tomorrow will be mostly sunny, but frost may reemerge between 4 and 8 a.m. on Thursday (Oct. 20), when the low temperature will be 33 degrees Fahrenheit.

The chill comes from a cold front that has traveled southeast across the U.S. from as far away as northern Russia and the Arctic, the Capital Weather Gang reported Friday (Oct. 13).
