DENVER FORECAST: Cover your plants! Possible freezing temperatures

DENVER (KDVR) – DENVER (KDVR) – After a warm start to the week, freezing temperatures could be possible by this weekend. The Pinpoint Weather Team has released a Pinpoint Weather Alert day for Friday.

Skies could clear early Saturday with overnight lows falling to around 0°C in Denver. This could lead to a freeze/freeze situation.

Be prepared for possible frost

  • Bring potted plants
  • Cover your newly planted flowers or gardens with a leaf

Collette Haskell, a Certified Professional Nurseryman from Colorado at Nick’s Garden Center and Farm Market in Aurora, suggests placing lawn chairs, buckets, or garden stakes around the plants and covering them with a sheet or large cloth. Plastic coverings make plants colder, she said.
