A frost advisory for much of the Augusta area has been issued for Monday from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m.

A frost advisory means that frost is possible and sensitive plants might be killed if left uncovered.

According to a weather bulletin, the counties affected include: Richmond, Columbia, McDuffie, Lincoln, McCormick, Edgefield, Aiken and Saluda.

In the Augusta area, temperatures are expected to be chilly early in the week and then warm up as the week progresses, reaching the mid-70s by Wednesday or Thursday, according to Tim Hawks, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in West Columbia.

Temperatures in the Augusta area are expected to be in the mid-30s for Sunday night and Monday morning. Monday afternoon, temperatures should reach the mid-60s and then drop back down to the mid-30s Monday night, Mr. Hawks said.

“There will probably be scattered areas of frost. It’s not a killing frost, but if you’ve got any tender plants you should probably bring them inside,” Mr. Hawks said.

Hey Al, where's that global

Hey Al, where's that global warming you've been talking about? It must feel good to know that EVERYBODY now knows you are a major league LIAR. You knew it all along. You've made MILLIONS trying to scare everybody. You're pathetic. Don't worry though. You'll spend eternity where it's VERY warm for all the lies you've told.

I think the A.G. theory is that global warming causes the temperature to fall.

okay hunbleopinion, al gore

okay hunbleopinion, al gore is going to hell cause u say so?...its funny how the modern world assumes hell is hot. there was a time when hell was thought as being a cold, dark, & depressing place. Just because its a lil nippy here does not mean ice caps are not melting in the artic. Ever heard of a guy named James hansen? NASA's Climatologist. You should look him up. You're most likely making global warming a political decision.
