Frost Advisory for Southern Tennessee tonight

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A few communities have already had some frost this season, but most of us haven’t even been close to cold enough for frost. That changes over the next few nights; expect scattered areas of frost tonight across Southern Tennessee, and even a few of the normally colder areas of North Alabama could get some patchy frost as well.
