THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

After reaching the upper 30s this morning for many places, we will do it again tonight and the following night. Most of SWFL is under a freeze warning which means temperatures will most likely be at or below freezing. Tomorrow will be sunny, dry and cool with temperatures in the low 60s by the afternoon and less wind. Friday night will be another night in the 30s followed by a sunny cool Saturday. Sunday will begin our warm up ahead of a cold front that may bring a few showers on Tuesday. 80s are in the forecast by mid next week Return to index of stories...

"Tropical places have tropical plants."

"Everybody wants to have the most tropical plants they can have, that's great until we have nights like this."

NIGHTS THAT MEAN PLAYING A DANGEROUS GAME FOR GROWERS LIKE WAYNE MORTON, WHO ARE TURNING TO IRRIGATION TO PROTECT THEIR PALMS.

"You work hard to grow plants, and one night could wipe you out."

"THE TECHNIQUE IS SUCCESSFUL, IF DONE PROPERLY WITH OVERHEAD IRRIGATION SYSTEMS AND CONSTANT FLOW OF WATER."

"We've got it down to a science at this point."

BUT FOR OTHER TYPES OF TROPICAL PLANTS LIKE THOSE AT RIVERLAND NURSERY

00:49:09-:16

"It slows us down quite a bit."

WATER COULD DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD.

"With the temperatures being so low you have to take a lot of extra precautions to protect our inventory and our plants."
