Michigan State University has developed wonderful online tools to answer these very kinds of questions. The link below will take you to an an article explaining the difference between frost and freeze and which crops can tolerate a freeze. Note in the article the link to the Enviro weather web site where you can get current information on temperatures and conditions in your area. Just click on the weather station that is closest to your location and you will find a wealth of information about growing conditions including frost and freeze information.
