Cold evening could cause plant problems

The calendar says spring but mother nature has other plans.

After a chilly and windy Sunday, it could get cold enough overnight to form frost, which in turn could kill sensitive plants. That’s according to the National Weather Service, which has issued a Frost Advisory for Arlington and much of the D.C. area.

The advisory, which goes into effect at midnight and is set to lift at 9 a.m., advises residents to “take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold.”
