My last post from last night at about 1:12 am mentioned my thought that unless something changes, a frost wasn’t likely. As you can see from the image in this post, something did happen. (This chart is from a weather station near the grove–the actual grove temperature was about 7° F lower.) Temperatures stayed fairly high until about 2 am, when a big drop began. From about 2 am to 7 am, the temperature dropped almost 10° F. The low reached in the grove was about 31° F. Just before dawn, a frost appeared near the ground, but not so much in the trees. In this grove, the young, recently-set flowers, fruits and flush came through okay. If it had dropped much lower for much longer, we could have seen a more significant frost event. In any case, last night on this frost watch, it was down to the wire.
