Green Thumbs Take Note

A FREEZE WARNING is in place from midnight to 7am on Tuesday for all of northern Illinois. If you have already spent some time in the garden this year you may want to take some precautions tonight. The disturbance causing today’s rain and snow will move out by midnight tonight. As it does so, the skies will clear our rather quickly. The airmass behind this piece of energy is quite cool for this time of year. That coupled with very little cloud cover and light winds should send our temperatures into the upper 20s for the first time since April 2nd. That being said, you may want to cover up your plants/flowers or just bring them inside for the night.

Statistically, in a typical year the last frost of the spring occurs on April 30th. After tonight we should be able to stay above the freezing mark for the next seven days. I haven’t glanced beyond that, but climatologically speaking after tonight we should stay above the freezing mark until next October! -ADAM

    Luckily I kept my plants inside so far. For some reason I knew it would get cold again. After tonight though I think Ill take them outside… my corn is getting pretty tall.
