Florida was not exempt Saturday night from the freezing temperatures gripping much of the East recently.

Every community across the Deep South, down to Louisiana's Lake Pontchartrain and Florida's northern peninsula, woke up Sunday to a frost and/or freezing temperatures.

This included the cities of Mobile, Tallahassee, Jacksonville and places as far south as Ocala and Brooksville.

Most places along the immediate coastline were the exception thanks to the influence of the milder offshore waters of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.

Cover or move any plotted plants indoors this morning since the frost and freeze is sure to kill sensitive plants and damage crops.

A good deal of sunshine will follow this mroning's chilly temperatures, but the long holiday weekend will still end on a cool note throughout the Deep South on Sunday with patchy frost potentially again causing problems for gardeners and farmers across the interior of northern Florida Sunday night.
