Special Statement

Statement as of 5:37 PM CDT on March 27, 2015

Expires 11:30 PM EDT on March 27, 2015


... Below freezing temperatures may impact early growing vegetation
this weekend...

The majority of plants... vines and fruit trees still remain in the
very early budding stages... so the below freezing temperatures
this weekend will not have a significant impact on these types of
vegetation.

However... the growth of some residential plants and Flowers have
been accelerated by the recent spell of warm days earlier this
week. Although these plants are rather Hardy and can withstand
temperatures in the 20s for several hours... temperatures in the
lower and middle 20s are expected tonight and Saturday night... east
of the Mississippi River... covering southern Illinois... west
Kentucky and southwest Indiana.

Temperatures tonight are not expected to fall below freezing until
after 9 PM CDT... but could remain below freezing until 10 am CDT
Saturday morning.

On Saturday night... temperatures will likely fall below freezing
around 10 PM CDT... rising above the freezing mark around 9 am CDT
Sunday morning.

If you have concern about protecting your own plants and
Flowers... then you still have time to cover them up early this
evening.

Above freezing temperatures should be the rule from Sunday night
and throughout next week.
