Frost advisory puts a chill on planting this weekend

Temperatures will fall into the 30s late tonight, and with clear skies and high pressure, there’s a chance of frost in Southeast Michigan. The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for 2 to 8 a.m. Saturday. Vegetation sensitive to frost should be covered. It is predicted to be cold enough for possible frost again tomorrow night.

If you have plants or flowering trees that are frost sensitive and you didn't cover them, get outside in the morning before the sun shines on them and run the sprinkler or spray them, rinsing off the frost. The temperature forecast isn't too cold, so most plants should be fine.
