A Hard Freeze Watch Threatens Crops
According to the National Weather Service, North Central Florida is under a hard freeze watch tonight until early Tuesday.
Farmers are dreading this weather, as it puts their crops on the line.
Peter Spyke, the owner of "The Orange Shop" in Citra says he will be on the look out once temperatures drop to 28 degrees.
The Orange Shop is working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the University of Florida in creating new types of oranges that can sustain the colder temperatures.
