Take a look at Morganton, NC Morganton Frost Wed and we can see “F” (frost) potential at 5 a.m. (with a low of 36 F). Similarly, in Ashland, VA, there is potential for frost at 5 a.m., and winds will be dead calm and skies CLEAR. If temperatures cool to 32 F, or below at strawberry canopy level, then it could definitely FROST. Ashland VA Wed
