Hard Freeze Warning: Utah fruit growers, gardeners in northern Utah protect your plants
(KUTV) Take care of any fruit trees, flowers or early vegetation because a hard freeze is coming to the Cache Valley, according to the National Weather Service.
Unseasonably cold low overnight temperatures across the state could bring damage to early budding fruit trees in the northern Utah area. On Monday, the NWS issued a hard freeze warning for Cache Valley beginning at midnight tonight (April 4) until 9 a.m. on Wednesday. The cold snap could affect any plants that are sensitive to temperatures around 28 degrees or lower.
The freezing temperatures could happen near the Utah/Idaho border and could damage early blooming fruit trees. The cold air will move into northern Utah and southwest Wyoming.
Temperatures will drop to near 28 degrees on Tuesday morning and will continue to drop to the low-to-mid 20 by Wednesday morning. Below freezing temperatures will likely remain through sunrise on Tuesday morning, the NWS predicts. While temperatures are expected to warm up above freezing during the daytime, another hard freeze is expected to happen Wednesday morning.
