STORMTRACK 3: Frost possible tonight; plants and crops at risk
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Cold air surging into the Carolinas tonight will drop temperatures all the way into the 30’s. We expect low 30’s for our inland areas, with mid to upper 30’s for the immediate coast and beach communities.
A Freeze Watch is in effect all night long for the entire viewing area. That means frost is going to be possible, especially in outlying inland areas where the temperature will get very close to freezing.
If you have already done a lot of planting in your garden, you need to take precautions now to protect your plants. This could be especially dangerous to crops that have already progressed nicely thanks to the warm weather we’ve seen during the Spring.
