Possible frost Sunday and Monday nights

Pick your tomatoes and cover your fair weather plants that are still bearing fruit, because here comes the frost. Frost is predicted tonight and tomorrow night in northern Oakland County. It might not be a hard frost, if any, but it's good to be ready for it. The forecast doesn't predict frost temperatures again for the rest of the week.

Here's the 10 day forecast for Pontiac weather:

If it does frost, a good remedy is to water the plants before the sun hits them. This works as long as the plants haven't frozen hard. Orchards use giant fans to keep air circulating, which prevents the frost from setting in on the trees and fruit.
