While it's technically still summer, it should come as no surprise to any true Albertan that a frost advisory has been issued for much of the central and northern parts of the province.

While it's technically still summer, a frost advisory has been issued for much of the central and northern parts of the province.

Environment Canada is advising people in affected areas to cover their plants tonight as a ridge of high pressure is moving into the province that could bring patchy frost early Tuesday morning.

The advisory applies to most regions north of Calgary, with the exception of a few areas to the northwest of the city and Fort Chipewyan - Wood Buffalo National Park in the top northeast corner of the province.

People living in affected areas are advised to cover their plants tonight as frost could be heading this way early Tuesday morning. (Environment Canada)
