"The air mass is really dry, so it's going to be hard for frost to form. And it has to be under a clear, calm condition so I think in the city it's not going to happen. But in the countryside, any place where the winds can lay down completely, there's that possibility," Lundberg says. Lundberg says there's another, maybe better, chance for a frost tomorrow night into Saturday morning.
