According to Chief Meteorologist Ken Meehan, temperatures will be dropping to the freezing mark Monday night.
That's not good news for anyone who has taken advantage of the spring weather we've already seen this year and taken the time to plant anything.
Kathy Osborne, who works at Beverly Hill Florists, said it would be a good idea to bring hanging plants inside. She also said if you have anything that can't be brought inside you need to cover them up with something light before the sun goes down. That should keep them warm through the night.
"If they do get damaged the best thing to do is not to trim or prune the damaged leaves," she said. "If another frost comes along that would help protect the plant."
Osborne also said if your plants get frost on them you can spray them with a little bit of cold water. She said that should help to warm the plants up.
