Weather advisories peppered Massachusetts and Rhode Island Monday morning as a sudden chill descended on the region.
An overnight frost advisory has been called for much of New England, while a wind advisory has been called for the Cape and a freeze watch in Central and Western Mass.
The weather took a quick dip after Sunday’s rain, with many communities sitting in the low-to-mid 50s and dropping much lower into the evening.
The overnight frost advisory, in effect from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m., means to bring any plants you’ve still got out back inside. It’s in effect for Eastern, Southeastern and Northeastern Massachusetts, but not the coast, according to the National Weather Service. It’s also in effect in Southern and Northern Rhode Island.
The freeze watch, also in effect from late tonight into early Tuesday morning, blankets all of Central and most of Western Massachusetts.
The wind advisory, in effect until 2 p.m. Monday, is for Cape Cod and the Islands. Winds were up to 40 miles per hour on the Outer Cape and Nantucket.
