Unseasonably cold temperatures are expected to be around for the next couple of nights, which could be threatening and harmful to your outdoor plants.

Lows are expected to dip into the mid to upper 20s, and that could badly damage or even kill any sensitive vegetation that is left out overnight.

Bring plants inside if possible tonight and tomorrow, and if they cannot be brought in, carefully wrap or cover those plants with a blanket.
