Frost warning issued for areas in red, 05 Sept 2013 (courtesy Environment Canada)
It may seem early – and it actually is for Greater Moncton – but a frost warning has been issued for all of New Brunswick tonight.
Gardeners should take precautions by either covering or heavily watering tender plants.
Environment Canada says a ridge of high pressure with clear skies and light winds will bring chilly overnight temperatures – possibly near the freezing point.
The average date for the first fall frost in Moncton is 27 September.
