Weather Alerts

If you have plants that are sensitive to the cold, you may want to cover them with a sheet before you go to bed Thursday night or bring them inside if they’re potted plants. Average first frosts in the lower Pioneer Valley are in early to mid-October, so frost is not unusual this time of year. Some areas have already seen frost earlier in the month.

Nighttime temperatures Friday night and through the weekend will be warmer so frost is not likely again into early next week.
