ALPINE, Calif. (KGTV) - A Frost Advisory was issued for San Diego County Valleys, prompting three key preparations to protect your pets, pipes and plants.

The advisory is in effect from 10 p.m. Saturday through 8 a.m. Sunday, in cities including Escondido, El Cajon, San Marcos, La Mesa, Santee, and Poway.

Ways to protect your plants is wrapping them before sundown, to retain heat, and watering trunks of trees with warm water the next morning.

Wrapping pipes in towels to retain heat keeps them from freezing. In areas that see a hard freeze, leaving the faucet dripping overnight is one way to keep the pipes from freezing.

Always remember to bring pets indoors. If you have a community cat, they do need shelter. The Humane Society explains what you can do to help.
