The Evansville/Vanderburgh County Emergency Management Agency posted the news of the frost advisory on Facebook.  It looks like a strong cold front is moving through and lows are anticipated to be in the lower to mid 30s. The good news is frost (if some does develop) should be gone once the sun is up.

Here's what the National Weather Service says about the frost:
