First Alert Summary

We broke a record today! Lows dipped down to 33 this morning breaking the 1948 record of 34 for the Metro Airport in Columbia. This ends the growing season for the Midlands, therefore we will not see any more frost/freeze advisories/warnings for the rest of the fall.

A First Alert Weather day is still up for Thursday morning as lows will once again dip into the low to mid 30s which could lead to areas of patchy frost. Also a few spots to the north could even see a light freeze, so if you have sensitive plants make sure they are covered tonight.
