Hi- the cool temperatures and cloudy/rainy weather will certainly slow growth and cause plants to look puny and, in some cases, off-color and somewhat tattered. But actual frost injury doesn't typically occur if temperatures are above 32 degrees F. at plant level, although frost can occur at 33-34 degrees F. if the dew point is fairly low.
