Are You Ready for Tonight's Potential Frost?
Warning - Frost Advisory Tonight!
The National Weather Service has posted a frost advisory for tonight in the Willamette Valley and a frost warning for the Columbia Gorge region. The forecast calls for rapid clearing this afternoon and plunging temperatures overnight. The coldest period will be from 1-8 a.m. with lows predicted below freezing in many low-lying areas. We advise taking all reasonable measures to protect crops today. Those with overhead irrigation or fans should prepare to operate those systems. Those without such systems, should consider spraying an anti-transpirant such as Frost Shield, Moisturin or VaporGard.  Either option should buy at least 2 degrees Fahrenheit of protection which may be enough to protect through this event.
