PORTER, Okla. — Meteorologists are predicting a strong cold front will barrel through eastern Oklahoma early Tuesday.

Kent Livesay, owner and farmer of Livesay Orchard in Porter, Okla., said he's not too worried about the weather impacting his peaches.

"We should be fine as long as it doesn't get into the 20s," Livesay said.

Still, Livesay said he and other farmers would be watching the weather closely.
