MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- During those extra-warm March days a lot of folks couldn’t resist buying and set out their spring plants. Those tender shoots may be at risk the next couple of mornings as temperatures fall to near freezing.
Trevor Boucher, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Nashville says Middle Tennessee could see some frost the next two mornings.
“Right now we’ve got a frost advisory for everywhere in Middle Tennessee that’s not on the Cumberland , and then a freeze watch for the Cumberland Plateau. Those temperatures could fall to freezing, especially in the low lying areas where the cold air tends to pool.”
Boucher says there’s an even better chance we’ll see some frost Thursday morning. High pressure dropping down out of Canada is responsible for the colder temperatures.
