Some spots at the Jersey Shore will see a “fairly widespread” frost early Wednesday morning, forecasters say.

With temperatures dropping into the lower to middle 30s, the National Weather Service has issued a Frost Advisory for interior Ocean, Burlington, and Atlantic counties.

The advisory applies to the typically colder countryside and forested areas between 1 a.m. and 9 a.m., according to the service.

Forecasters say that sensitive plants will be susceptible to damage.

Temperatures near and at the coast will be in the middle to upper 40s, so no frost will form there, according to NOAA.

Early Wednesday morning will feature the coldest temperatures of the next seven days. Low temperatures for the remainder of the week will be in the middle to upper 50s.

By Friday and though the weekend, high temperatures will be in the lower 70s.
