"Cold" weather hitting Florida this week

Are these overnight lower 40's temps going to cause my tomato plants to freak out? Just a week ago we were in the lower to mid 90's during the day......I should know, my AC is busted.

Your tomato plants should be just fine. The warm season plants tolerate short periods of cold well and it probably won't have any effect upon the plants. The overall decreasing daylength and cooler temperatures will, however, probably ultimately impact your plants growth as we get further into fall.
