DENVER (KDVR) — DENVER (KDVR) — After a warm start to the week, freezing temperatures could be possible by this weekend. The Pinpoint Weather Team has issued a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day for Friday.

Skies could clear early Saturday with overnight lows dropping to around freezing in Denver. This could result in a frost/freeze situation.

Prepare for the possible freeze

  • Bring in potted plants
  • Cover your newly planted flowers or gardens with a sheet

Collette Haskell, a Colorado Certified Nursery Professional at Nick’s Garden Center and Farm Market in Aurora, suggests putting lawn chairs, buckets or yard stakes around the plants and covering them with a sheet or large cloth. Plastic coverings make plants colder, she said.
