Freeze Alert!

Posted By on Mon, Mar 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM

There is a freeze warning for Tucson and Southern Arizona for Monday night into Tuesday morning. Temperatures are predicted for 32 degrees. Your home could be 4-10 degrees cooler, especially if you live near a wash.

Plant Protection List:
~ Most plants should be plenty wet from yesterday's rains. Potted plants under a ramada or roof need to be checked to make sure the soil is damp.
~ Cover newly planted tender annuals and vegetables with frost cloth.
~ Weight them down with rocks or clothes pins.
~ Do not use towels or plastic covers.
