Default Pea seeds and a brief cold snap

This is my first TV post... so hello all!

I am located in central Arkansas, zone 7b. On Saturday I planted spinach seeds and, after a brief soak, pea seeds. Now, the forecast for this week is unseasonably warm (highs near 70). On Thursday, we will have a brief cold snap with nighttime lows dropping to around 33... this is only for one night though.
I'm thinking that because of the soak and warm temps, the germination gears will be turning in the seed by the time this cold night comes; I'm worried about my little seeds. Will these low night temps destroy my hopes of a beautiful patch of peas?

Will they be alright or are they doomed? Should I cover the row with visqueen for that night?
