HAMPTON ROADS -- The first freeze of the season is likely in many areas Friday night as temperatures plunge into the lower 30s.

A freeze warning is in effect from Chesapeake westward and Williamsburg westward, according to 13News Now Meteorologist Julie Wilcox.

In North Carolina the warning extends from Perquimans and Gates County west.

Wilcox warns that tender vegetation and pets should be brought inside for the overnight and early morning hours.

Closer to the coast, a frost advisory is in effect through Saturday morning, meaning temperatures will fall into the mid-30s. That advisory covers the Peninsula and Middle Peninsula, with the exception of Mathews County.

In North Carolina the advisory is in place for Pasquotank, Camden and mainland Dare County. Again, sensitive plants should be protected to stave off damage.

Temperatures right at the coast from the Eastern shore to the Oceanfront and Outer Banks will be around 40 degrees.

Wilcox says it will still be quite chilly, but not as cold Saturday night.
