Freeze Warning: the National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for the following counties: Somerset, Cambria, Clearfield, Indiana, Jefferson, and western Centre. Temperatures will be around the freezing mark and damage could be done to your plants. Bring your plants inside or cover them up.

Also for those counties not under the Freeze Warning, it doesn’t mean you will be warmer. Your plants could still be damaged by the freezing temperatures. The Freeze Warning is based on the growing season. So if your county is not in the growing season yet a Freeze Warning will not be issued.
