A frost advisory is in effect for parts of Central New York

A frost ADVISORY is in effect for Onondaga, Oswego, Cayuga, Seneca,Yates, Wayne, and Ontario counties until 8am Wednesday.

A frost advisory means that cold temperatures will reach the dew (frost) point and cause frost across parts or all of the counties listed above. Sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.

In this particular case, just about all areas of central New York have about an equal risk for receiving frost. The only reason why other counties are not included in the frost advisory (like the North Country, the Mohawk Valley and the Southern Tier) is because the growing season has not started for these areas. The highest risk for the thickest frost will actually be in the North Country, the Mohawk Valley, and the Southern Tier, where there is technically no frost advisory. The lowest risk for frost will be right near the lakeshores of Lake Ontario, Oneida Lake and the Finger Lakes. Downtown Syracuse will also be right in the cusp of frost or no frost.

If your area has a frost advisory or you have started your crops or gardens, here is what you should do :-- Farmers and gardeners in these areas should take precaution to extend the growing season.-- To protect crops, gardens and outdoor plants, click on this link for tips.Here is a list cities with their corresponding average date for the last 32° temperature for the season. I have also included when the earliest and latest a 32° temperature has occurred. You will notice that there are many places that typically see frost beyond this date. This is why a frost advisory has technically not been issued for those cities and counties.
