Protect those plants: Here comes season's 1st frost

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - That chill in the air is about to get colder.

The season's first frost advisory will go into effect overnight Monday, Oct. 10, for locations away from the Lake Michigan shoreline, according to the National Weather Service 

Water temperatures, running at least 5 to 10 degrees higher than the air temperature, will prevent the lakeshore from seeing frost.
