Frost Alert Tonight 4/10/2020
AWIS Weather Advisory: Frost Protection Needed Tonight
— Written By Mark Hoffmann
We are expecting low temperatures this night and clear skies, a perfect mixture for frost. In some areas we expect close to 30°F minimum air-temperature (see Figure 1). You need to cover your strawberry crop or use any other frost protection tonight. Figure 1: Minimum Temperatures for Saturday morning. Most of NC will be below 40°F. Data provided by Agriculture Weather Information Services (AWIS).
Temperatures will rise again during Saturday, so you can uncover on Saturday or latest Sunday again. Don’t leave covers on for too long, due to disease and pollination issues!
