When in doubt, cover the plants. Pillow cases, buckets or just sheets can be used to cover the plants. Snow in itself is not likely to harm the plants, but if the temperatures dip, it is more concerning.

Make sure you remove the coverings in the morning when temperatures rise, to avoid over heating and burning the plants.
