Quick. Protect your plants.

The National Weather Service in Boise has issued a frost warning for early Sunday and Monday mornings in the Treasure Valley and the western Magic Valley.

A deep freeze isn't expected but frost crystals could damage tender vegetation. The low temperature is expected to hover between 32 degrees and 36 degrees between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. both days.

Plants that could be susceptible to freezing temperatures should be covered or brought indoors, if possible.
