Another Arctic Blast is on the way to south Georgia.

"We'll see sub freezing temperatures for at least four days," said Chris Zelman Walb news 10's morning meteorologist.

The threat for continuous days below freezing should have you on high alert to protect,

"Pets, the people and the plants, you obviously want to take care of those," said Zelman.

At this time, only Coffee County is under a hard freeze warning meaning temperatures will be at or below 28 degrees for more than 2 hours.

"We're really kind of on the board line of that, so the pipes should be okay, but if you want to be safe, go ahead and wrap them," said Zelman.

We were spoiled with spring-like conditions over the weekend and that allowed some plants to think spring was on the way.

"It's going to affect something's some new growth because we've had some warm days where we've had some plants start to bud out or leaf out with new growth," said Mark's Greenhouses Nursery manager Brian Wright.


Some folks have already started to fertilize and with the freezing temperatures on the way that could be detrimental to the plant, but the best thing to do right now is,

"Just be patent, we've got plenty of time. Typically, you know, a lot of old folks say wait until after Easter and get going then," said Wright.

Overall it's safe to say,

"The groundhog got it right," Zelman.
