A frost advisory has been issued tonight for Orleans County and all of western, central and northern New York.

Temperatures will drop to the low to mid-30s and will result in frost formation, the National Weather Service in Buffalo said.

The advisory is in effect from midnight to 8 a.m. The frost could kill sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.

The Weather Service urges people to take steps to protect tender plants from the cold.

The high temperatures the next few days include mostly sunny and 52 on Tuesday, sunny and 56 on Wednesday, sunny and 62 on Thursday and partly sunny and 63 on Friday.

These sheep enjoy the outdoors and don’t mind the passersby at the Genesee County Village and Museum.
