(WTXL) — A freeze warning has been issued for Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Tallahassee.
Gadsden, Liberty, Jackson, Bay, and Calhoun counties are under the warning for the North Florida area while Lowndes, Thomas, Decatur, Grady, Brooks, Tift, Early, Miller, Baker, Mitchell, Colquitt, Cook, Berrien, Seminole, and Lanier counties are under the watch in South Georgia.
A freeze warning means temperatures will dip below freezing with wind chills in the 20's between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation. Here's some tips to get prepared:
- PROTECT PLANTS
- Cover your plants with a frost cloth. If you can't find a frost cloth, a sheet or a blanket works well.
- If there are potted plants you can't move inside, then move potted plants to a spot where they're protected from the wind
- Spread at least two to three inches of mulch to protect the roots of plants and trees
- Use water on plants. Watering your plants actually protects them from the cold.
