Frost expected early Sunday across Southwestern Pennsylvania

The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for the Pittsburgh region from 2-10 a.m. Sunday.

The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory Sunday for Southwestern Pennsylvania and parts of Ohio and West Virginia.

The agency expects temperatures in the low to mid-30s from 2-10 a.m.

It advises residents to cover plants that can be harmed by the cold.

Meteorologist Lee Hendricks said the frost would mainly impact low-lying areas. He said residents can cover plants with light plastic or hit them in the morning with a light spray of water to prevent frost burning.

“(Sunday) is actually going to be very nice day, sunny with temperatures in the high 60s,” he said. “It should be clear Sunday night with temperatures in the low 40s.

The frost won’t necessarily bring relief for those suffering from allergies.

“You almost need a freeze rather than a frost,” Hendricks said. “Believe me, I wish the ragweed would die a horrible and immediate death.”

He said the Columbus Day holiday Monday is expected to be clear with highs in the 60s, but a little windy.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
