NATCHEZ — October 19th is national seafood bisque day and what perfect timing. Frost and cold temperatures are on the way for the Miss-Lou.

Wednesday nights low is 34 with a northwest wind blowing about 5mph. It is a clear night so any hot air will escape the earth’s surface.

The frost will damage any unprotected vegetation and is expected to be in the area Thursday as well. NWS Jackson says the greatest chance of a frost is in areas north of US 84.
