Frost advisories issued for various parts of Alberta on Friday

It may still be summer but some parts of Alberta aren’t safe from possibly experiencing some seriously cold temperatures on Friday night.

Environment Canada issued a number of frost advisories in the province on Friday afternoon.

“Patchy frost is expected tonight,” the weather agency said on its website. “Cover up plants, especially those in frost-prone areas.”

Environment Canada said it issues frost advisories when temperatures are expected to reach the freezing mark during the growing season.

They said the dip in temperatures can lead to potential damage and destruction to plants and crops.
