Weather Update

As November gets underway, we would like to highlight the start of the Frost/Freeze Program for north and central Georgia. Frost Advisories and Freeze Watches/Warning are issued when temperatures are expected to drop to near freezing in the spring and fall. 

In the fall, Frost/Freeze products are issued to highlight the first freezes of the cold season. These products will continue to be issued until the growing season is declared over—when minimum temperatures reach 28°F, or on November 20th.

The Frost/Freeze Program is primarily intended for agricultural interests, and the aforementioned date has been coordinated with our agricultural partners, including the University of Georgia Department of Crop and Soil Sciences and the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

On that note, a Freeze Watch is in effect for Fannin, Union, and Towns Counties from 5 AM to 9 AM tomorrow (Saturday). Patchy frost will also be possible across adjacent areas of far north Georgia. Frost and freeze conditions may damage or kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.
