CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Instead of slathering on sunscreen this Memorial Day holiday weekend, residents in much of West Virginia are being advised to cover up their tender vegetation.

A freeze warning has been posted for all or parts of 10 counties for early Saturday. The warning is in effect from 2 a.m. to 8 a.m. Saturday in Grant, Greenbrier, Mineral, Nicholas, Pendleton, Pocahontas, Preston, Randolph, Tucker and Webster counties.

At least 19 other counties, mostly in the northern part of the state, are under a frost advisory.

The National Weather Service says temperatures could drop to as low as 30 degrees in some areas. Residents in threatened areas should cover tender plants or bring them indoors.

Meteorologist Liz Sommerville says freezing temperatures aren't uncommon in late May in West Virginia's highest elevations.
