AWIS Weather Advisory: Frost Threat late weekend, early next week.
In collaboration with AWIS Weather Services
after a devastating frost/freeze event two weeks ago, in which many lost crops others than strawberry, the upcoming frost threat seems like a piece of cake. However, it is later in the season and for many the crop is more advanced. We expect potential frost conditions in central and western parts of North Carolina, most of Virginia and up North for the coming Sun-Tue, with Monday morning showing the highest likelihood. We recommend to look at your local forecast, and use either over-head sprinklers or row-covers to frost protect in critical nights!
*** Low Rain Chances Through Weekend, Some winds
*** Freeze and/or Frost Risks Some Areas Sun-Tue Mornings
*** Freeze/Frost Threat Greatest Monday Morning, Carolinas’ Northward
*** Perhaps Frost Threat Tuesday Morning Northern/Eastern Areas
*** Warmer Middle / End Of Next Week
*** Next Rain Chances Not Until Late Next Week
A couple weaker disturbances will move SE through
the main upper trough, but will not produce much if any rainfall
Friday into the weekend, just mostly periods of clouds and
variable winds, along with cooler temperatures.
The last weak disturbance will push SE through the Mid-Atlantic
and SE states on Saturday, with the coldest air behind this
for late this weekend into early next week.
Growers need to be ready for a potential freeze as early
as Sunday morning some areas. This affects mainly parts of Western NC, VA and North. Most likely a potential freeze and/or frost will be
next Monday morning.
A frost or light ground freeze could linger into Tuesday
morning, mainly far Eastern and Northern areas of the
Growers are advised to check local forecasts through
early next week, and be prepared to protect vegetation
as needed, based on anticipated winds, low temperatures
and timing of best protective measures.
Consult local experts on best protective measures given
your anticipated local weather conditions and crop
Temperatures will warm back up for the middle and end
of next week, next rain chances towards the end of

At the moment it looks like several regions in North Carolina as well as Virginia will need to protect their blossoms from potential frost damage, using covers or overhead sprinklers. Windspeed will be low and only little to no rain in the forecast. Please monitor your regional forecasts. We will keep you updated on any changes.
