It may still say summer on the calendar, but the season’s first frost warning has been issued. This warning is for Haliburton and Minden – in Southern Haliburton County and Oxtongue Lake and  Fort Irwin – in Northern Haliburton County.

Environment Canada advises frost may damage some crops in the areas designated as frost-prone.

Temperatures in the area could reach zero degrees, with clear skies and calm winds forecast. These conditions will allow for the formation of patchy frost overnight and into early Sunday morning.

It is advised to cover up any sensitive plants that are still growing towards a harvest.

Environment Canada issues a frost advisory when temperatures are expected to fall to zero or below during the growing season, which can lead to the destruction of plants and crops.
