With the mere mention of the word frost, some people throw up their arms and gasp at the very idea of cooler weather.

Seriously friends, it happens about this time every year.  We are right in the middle of our "average date of first frost" range.

As of now, it looks like frost will be likely for inland areas away from the city Friday night.  A widespread damaging frost (with some inland areas getting their first freeze of the season) is likely Saturday night.  Another frost potential will be Sunday night.

Frost or no, the weekend is looking chilly.  And the cooler air flowing over the warmer water of Lake Erie... yes, lake effect.  With the cold air in place and if the timing of the showers is just right, we could see some wet snowflakes mixing in with the rain.

Time to dig out the sheets and get ready to protect plants, if you are so inclined.
