UPDATE on MONDAY FROST POTENTIAL in NC, VA, MD, KY, SC, & GA (1:30pm, Sun., 4/29/18)
I was definitely not expecting to be issuing frost advisories this late in the season for strawberry growers in the Carolinas, Virginia, and other areas. This brief advisory is intended to only identify any changes that may have taken place since yesterday’s frost alert for this evening and tomorrow morning.
Fig. 4. This was yesterday’s AWIS forecast for Mon 4/30, and the changes here have been mostly good ones! In the current forecast (Fig. 3) you do not see that teal area (36-38) in the counties north of Raleigh and RDU area.
So, PLAY IT SAFE, and be sure to consult the latest AWIS frost forecast for the city/town closest to your farm:
