Atlanta, Ga (CBS46) A freeze warning has been issued for late Saturday night leading into Sunday. Across metro Atlanta temperatures are expected to dip into the 30's.

Here's some tips to keep you, your home, plants and pets safe:

  • Prevent your pipes from freezing! Allow a light trickle of water to run overnight.
  • Leave kitchen and bathroom cabinets open to keep warm air circulating below sinks.
  • Know where shut-off valves are located in the event a pipe bursts.
  • Bring in small container plants. Mulch/cover outdoor plants with plastic, burlap or blankets.
  • Keep pets indoors
