UPDATE: All advisories mentioned in this story have ended

A frost advisory has been issued for Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert and other parts Saskatchewan.  Environment Canada says plants and crops may be damaged or destroyed by frost overnight into early Tuesday.

Saskatoon is likely to fall a degree or 2 below freezing early Tuesday morning for the first time in nearly four months.

The last time the mercury fell into minus territory in the city was on May 29, 2015 when an overnight low of -2.8 was reached.

Clear skies and light winds are expected to prevail Monday night into Tuesday morning as a high pressure system drops in cool air that will pull much of central Saskatchewan below zero.

The advisory also spans to cover much of Alberta including the cities of Edmonton and Calgary where patchy frost is expected.

The agency recommends taking preventative measures to protect frost-sensitive plants and trees.
