Ok to fertilize w/ frost advisory?
 
The last week we has alot of rain. I plan on cutting my grass, Aerating and then fertilizing with Scotts Winterguard. Were supposed to have a frost advisory tonight. Fertilizing a good idea? Or should I wait for the 70's temps next week?

You're good to go, either way.

Given it's just the first frost warning, it should be fine.

You are putting the nutrients into the soil and frost only affects vegetation well above ground. You will have to wait a while before you even get the upper inch or two to freeze, but the nutrients will still be there and available when necessary.
