    Frost, Freeze for Parts of the East, South Tonight

    Frost will visit much of the interior South tonight, while a freeze chills much of the interior Northeast.

    Dry, cooler air overspread the South during recent days.

    As skies remain clear tonight, winds will drop off, allowing cold air to collect near the ground.

    The outlying areas around Richmond, Raleigh, Charlotte, Chattanooga, Birmingham, Atlanta, Columbia, Nashville, Jackson, Shreveport, and Little Rock are in for some frost tonight.

    Farther north, a breeze will stay up tonight, preventing frost in the coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic and southern New England.

    However, the air will be cold enough without the aid of calm conditions to bring a freeze to the Appalachians and much of northern New England.

    Cities that are forecast to get a freeze tonight in the North include: Bangor, Maine; Binghamton, N.Y.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; and Beckley, W.Va. Temperatures in the countryside over the interior may drop into the 20s for several hours and hover near the 32-degree mark for a time in towns and cities.

    If you still have the garden hose and birdbath out in the North, it may be time to empty them of water and bring them indoors.

    Temperatures are forecast to hold above freezing in the major metropolitan areas of the I-95 corridor including Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C.

    Cloud cover prevented a frost Thursday night in the Ohio Valley. However, clear skies and diminishing wind tonight should allow some frost on the pumpkins around Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Louisville.
