The cold temperatures will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, the NWS stated. Unprotected outdoor plumbing will also be at risk.

The NWS advises the following:

  • Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly.
  • Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
