Vrydaghs said gardeners should consider bringing flowers indoors if possible, or covering up already-growing perennials. The florists at Siebenthaler’s in Beavercreek advised the flowers likely couldn’t survive a freeze.
“When it drops this low, we’re talking about freezes as opposed to frosts,” said Collin Fanning. “They can survive the frost, the freezing is a little bit different.”

High pressure arrives Sunday, bringing mostly sunny skies back to the region. But Vrydaghs said this sunshine will not help to warm us though, as highs only reach into the lower 30s after a cold start in the teens.
Clouds increase Monday as the Alberta clipper approaches from the northwest. This will bring the chance of scattered snow showers to the area, Vrydaghs said. Some rain may mix in from the south as temperatures climb into the middle 30s by the afternoon.
As temperatures fall into Monday night, all precipitation will change back over to snow.
“This is still several days away, but if this pans out there is possibility to see several inches of snow by Tuesday morning,” Vrydaghs said.
