A cold snap is bringing freezing temperatures to Florida this weekend. But one citrus scientist says the state’s embattled growers shouldn’t see much damage. 

Temperatures will tumble this week in Florida. For the first time in nearly five months, a cold front will make it all the way through the Keys and Miami by Tuesday. This will not only mark the end to the state’s rainy season, it will send many to their coat closets to find a jacket or hoodie.
