NOTTINGHAM, MD—Winter has briefly returned to the Nottingham area to say a proper goodbye, it seems.
The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning and a Frost Advisory for Baltimore County.
The Freeze Warning will be in effect for northern Baltimore County from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Friday.
Temperatures will drop to around 30 degrees on Thursday night. Frost and freeze conditions will likely kill crops, other sensitive vegetation, and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.
Residents should take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above- ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
The Frost Advisory will be in effect for southern Baltimore County and Baltimore City from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Friday. Temperatures in the middle 30s are expected to result in frost formation. Frost could kill sensitive outdoor vegetation if left uncovered.
Temperatures should return to the mid-60s by Friday afternoon.
