...DAMAGE TO OUTDOOR PLANTS AND FLOWERS POSSIBLE TONIGHT...

CLEARING SKIES AND DIMINISHING WINDS WILL ALLOW A FAVORABLE SETUP
FOR TEMPERATURES TO FALL RAPIDLY TONIGHT INTO THE LOWER TO MIDDLE
20S IN MANY LOCATIONS. AREAS PRONE TO ENHANCED AIR DRAINAGE MAY BE
EVEN COLDER WITH LOWS IN THE UPPER TEENS.

THE COLD WINTER AND EARLY SPRING HAS SLOWED THE ONSET OF THE
GROWING SEASON FOR THE REGION. AS A RESULT...MOST TREES ARE IN THE
INITIAL BUDDING STAGES WHEN THEY ARE ABLE TO WITHSTAND COLD
TEMPERATURES. HOWEVER...MANY ANNUAL/PERENNIAL FLOWERS AND PLANTS
ARE SEEING MORE RAPID GROWTH. THESE PLANTS ARE MUCH MORE
SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE COLD. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THOSE PLANTS MORE
SUSCEPTIBLE TO DAMAGE FROM COLD EITHER BE COVERED OR BROUGHT INSIDE
TONIGHT. MORE SEASONABLE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED THE REMAINDER
OF THE WEEK INTO NEXT WEEK.
