Freeze warnings have been issued for Saturday morning across a broad area covering the Midwest, as well as the middle Atlantic States, the central and southern Appalachians, and much of Kentucky and Tennessee. For some locations, Saturday’s low temperatures could be the lowest ever observed during May. In orchards and vineyards across the Great Lakes and Northeastern States, gusty winds accompanying the cold wave will reduce the effectiveness of typical freeze-protection measures. Freeze injury could extend to other crops, including heading winter wheat and emerged summer crops. However, many Midwestern summer crops, including corn and soybeans, have been slow to emerge during the month-long cool spell preceding this weekend’s freeze. Although the cold conditions will peak during the weekend, frost could persist in parts of the Great Lakes and Northeastern States into the middle of next week.
