A chilly morning is on tap for most of central and north-central Alberta Tuesday.

With skies forecast to clear overnight, temperatures will drop near or slightly below zero in a number of spots.

Environment and Climate Change Canada has issued a frost advisory for areas from Athabasca south to Calgary and Edson east to Vegreville.

Not ALL of that area will see a frost, and most areas that DO slip below zero should not see a killing frost Tuesday morning. But, patchy frost (especially in low-lying areas) is likely.

The City of Edmonton is included in the advisory, but most neighbourhoods inside the Henday should stay above 0 C.

That said, if you have some prized plants, you may want to consider covering them up just to be on the safe side.
