Frost Could Threaten Plants Friday Night

  • Photo

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa Anyone who planted gardens early will want to cover up plants Friday night with a frost advisory out for much of Eastern Iowa.

KCRG-TV9 Meteorologist Joe Winters forecast temperatures into the low to mid 30s with colder temperatures to the north. The average low temperature for May in Cedar Rapids is 49 degrees. Click here for the latest forecast.

The frost can damage or kill some plants left unprotected overnight.

The Iowa State University Exension Office says different types of plants react differently to frost. Cool season vegetables and flowers, like lettuce and pansies, can tolerate frost but warm season plants, including tomatoes and impatiens, do not. Covering up plants with a sheet or bucket can help protect them from frost.
