As of Saturday, the only places in South Jersey where the growing season remained were Atlantic and Cape May counties. While most of the harvest is over, a temperature below 32 tonight likely caps the season.
In advance of the damaging weather arriving, a freeze warning will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday for Atlantic and Cape May counties. This includes the shore as well.
Temperatures on the mainland will be in the mid to upper 20s come Sunday morning. Though the shore will be still in the warning, water temperatures in the 50s will moderate our first arctic blast of the year. So, lows will be close to freezing, but I believe there will be greater than 50/50 chance that temperatures do not drop below 32. Gardens you may have along the shore may wind up ok.
However, take steps on Saturday to protect the tender plants from the cold. Just make sure to bundle up while doing it. While plenty of sunshine will prevail, highs in the 40s and windy conditions from the northwest will mean the extra layer will be required.

It will be a late freeze for Atlantic City International Airport. On average, the first sub-32 reading is typically at the end of October.
