    Frosty pumpkins will be on display Monday morning.

    With temperatures dropping into the 30s Sunday night at the Jersey Shore, the National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for Ocean and Atlantic counties and a Frost Advisory for Cape May County and interior Monmouth County.

    Overnight temperatures will be slightly cooler in Ocean and Atlantic counties, according to the service.

    “A couple of hours of temperatures around freezing could kill unprotected crops and sensitive vegetation,” the bulletins advise.

    Forecasters say to cover plants to prolong the growing season and take tropical plants inside.
