A freeze warning is in effect from late Friday night through Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service.
Saturday morning could bring widespread frost, the NWS says. Temperatures could drop low enough to kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, the NWS says. Now is the time to get out there and bring in your houseplants — or make yourself a note to do so as soon as you arrive home.
Underground root vegetables should be safe, as should hearty mums.
