Yup. A week with nights below 50 F should do it.

Moving to the shade possibly made the plant stretch for more light. I notice the yellowing and brown spots before the plants slow dow much. Cold and wet nights do it for me.

I'd keep them in full sun each day and move to shelter at night if possible.
