WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Up to this point, most of North Central Wisconsin has not had low temperatures slip back to or below the freezing mark. Although there is a frost advisory late tonight into early Sunday morning, the coverage of frost will be scattered at best. With that in mind, we are way past when the growing season typically ends, and if you still have some plants growing in your garden, more power to you. Mainly clear and a bit chilly tonight, with lows ranging from the upper 20s to low 30s in the coldest spots, mid to upper 30s in the rest of the region.
