…PATCHY FROST EXPECTED OVERNIGHT ACROSS PARTS OF THE QUAD STATE
REGION…

PATCHY FROST IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS
ACROSS PARTS OF THE QUAD STATE REGION.

AT THIS TIME, THE PERIOD OF GREATEST CONCERN FOR FROST DEVELOPMENT
WILL SPAN BETWEEN 400 AM AND 700 AM CDT.

THE AREA OF GREATEST CONCERN WILL BE ACROSS SOUTHERN ILLINOIS,
ESPECIALLY NEAR THE INTERSTATE 64 CORRIDOR, SOUTHEAST MISSOURI,
AND THE PURCHASE AREA OF WEST KENTUCKY.

ALTHOUGH A FEW PROTECTED AREAS MAY SEE A HEAVIER FROST
DEVELOPMENT, MOST FROST INTENSITY SHOULD BE LIGHT IN NATURE.

MOST HARDY AND WELL ESTABLISHED PLANTS AND SHRUBS SHOULD BE ABLE
TO TOLERATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF FROST.

NEWLY TRANSPLANTED PLANTS AND EXTREMELY TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE
OUTDOOR PLANTS MAY SEE SOME IMPACT DUE TO THE FROST. TAKE MEASURES
TO GUARD THOSE PLANTS AGAINST THE FROST THIS AFTERNOON AND THIS
EVENING.

ANY LINGERING FROST SHOULD DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY BY 8 AM CDT ON
SATURDAY.
