For the second day in a row, Environment Canada has issued a Frost Advisory for Moose Jaw and the surrounding areas, as temperatures are expected to hover around zero on Wednesday night.
The agency says a ridge of high pressure will lead to clearing skies and light winds allowing temperatures to drop below the freezing mark tonight across eastern Saskatchewan. Frost is likely to be patchy in nature.
Regions outside the frost advisory, such as over western Saskatchewan, will carry a risk of frost, as temperatures fall to +1 or +2 degrees under slightly windier conditions.
Cover up plants, especially those in frost-prone areas. Take preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees.
Frost advisories are issued when temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark during the growing season, leading to potential damage and destruction to plants and crops.

- City of Moose Jaw
