Good afternoon everyone! Thanks for joining us...
It might be good and somewhat safe to cover the orchids in tree with a layer or two of burlap.
We grow amny
tropivla plnats in our area
Hi Lydia, this is the coldest air we've seen in a while, but not that long. The last time we were below 40 in West Palm was January 2014 with a temperature of 38°. In Fort Pierce, January 2014 with a temperature of 34°. In Stuart, however...it's been 5 years since you've had temperatures this cold!
Sorry...the mnay tropical plants we grow in our area m
ight be safer near the coast but not completely out of the danger of the cold
Hi Josh, tonight into tomorrow morning will be very cold, but the coldest temperatures will arrive Thursday night into Friday morning. Bundle up!
Young, recently planted vegetables are most vulnerable, cover them with black plastic but don't forget to remove the plastic during the daytime...if they are damaged you can always replant, you still have plenty of days left!
Whatever we're feeling by the time dinner comes around Greg! #LOL
Most palms can survive the cold...there are a few that are very sensitive like the Red Sealing Wax
Great question JNScientific! The system that brought the ice and snow to the South and the Northeast this week brought in one cold front, and now another low has forced an even stronger cold front to come through. This one is coming straight from Canada.
YOLO. Not happening! The students can continue to dream though!
That is a great question John. Temperatures will plummet after sunset, and they'll be at their coldest right at daybreak. The same can be said on Friday...and Friday will be the coldest day this week.
I think your snap paes will
be fine the next couple of days
I would have to say it'll FEEL LIKE 31 in Port St. Lucie tomorrow morning.
I would bring them inside if you are able....especially tomorrow evening
The JNScientific -- wait until Friday morning! It'll absolutely take you by surprise.
This cold snap will be long gone come Sunday. We could see more cold snaps until May.
Absolutely nothing, olive trees will love this wea
Dans -- it wouldn't be a bad idea. With temperatures this low...you're always better safe than sorry.
Missy....put your sprinklers on to water your plants well before the cold....not to cover then for protection
Kay, it depends where you live...you'll stay in the 50s along the TC and Okee...around 60 in the Palm Beaches. Light weight jacket for everyone in my opinion!
I don't think you'll need to cover any plants this cold spell.....but the forecast might change for tomorrow evening...watch Channel 5 for the latest reports if it gets
near freezing then you might have to cover
Spray your orchids to get them
well watered.....they'll survive the cold much better!
It'll be much warmer than tonight and Thursday night...no threat for freezing temps at this time.
