After temperatures fell below freezing in just a few spots across the East Monday morning, a more widespread frost and freeze is expected Monday night and Tuesday morning.

As high pressure settles into the East and winds turn calm Monday night, temperatures will plummet to close to freezing across several of the larger metro areas.

Areas of frost are expected across cities such as Raleigh, N.C., Baltimore, Md., Richmond, Va., Pittsburgh, Pa., and Charleston, W.Va.

A freeze will affect cities and towns farther north such as Binghamton, N.Y., Burlington, Vt., Albany, N.Y., and State College, Pa.

Below is a chart showing the forecast low temperatures for Monday night for selected cities:

Late last week, Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski warned that "near-freezing temperatures will have some agricultural interests taking precautions to reduce the risk of damage to orchards, vineyards and berry farms."

Homeowners who have already planted their warm-season plants across these areas should take precautions to cover and protect them.

The good news for residents and farmers is that this round of freezing temperatures will be short-lived.

Temperatures will rebound rather quickly as a storm system moving across southern Canada brings warmer temperatures to the Great Lakes Tuesday and to the Northeast Wednesday.
