Question Cavendish cold hardiness temperature

Hi all,
A damp and rainy coldfront pushing through. Looked up temps predicted and says lows of 45. Can cavendish handle this? Poor thing already screwed up from last front, even though I covered the young plant (about 3 foot high) I lost all leaves except dead center. Now it's finally recovering and beginning to grow, and this front comes through...argh! Should I cover for safety purposes? Last time I used sheets. I've also thought about next time as low as last time, I might surround the entire plant in pine needles and then the sheet.
Thanks ahead of time guys,
