Accuweather.com reports that temperatures in the Michiana area could fall 10 to 15 degrees below normal.
Sunday night will bring the greatest potential for frost. The National Weather Service predicts a low temperature of 32 degrees for Sunday night.
ďI donít think itís going to be bitter cold, but some annuals are more sensitive than others,Ē said Debbie Fessenden, a landscape designer at Lintonís Enchanted Gardens, 315 C.R. 17 in Elkhart.
ďIf you have anything annual, like hanging baskets or if you have planted annuals, just cover them with a sheet,Ē Fessenden said. ďDonít use plastic. Plasticís never good for plants.Ē
The frost should not harm perennial plants, she said.
