Early Warning for Tucson Based Citrus folks

pgde(Tucson Zone 9)December 8, 2012

Revised forecast for low temps by the NWS is as follows:

==> Monday, Dec 10, low is forecast to be 32 degrees for two hours (between 6 to 8 am)
==> Tuesday, Dec. 11, low is forecast to be 29 degrees. Below freezing temps will be between 0300 and about 0800.

Following nights are at 34 degrees or above as a low temp. Winds are projected to between 5 and 8 mph.

What are you all going to do? I am wondering if I need to drag out the lights and frost cloth. It is very dry so I don't think frost will be an issue. But, I probably will do watering to help keep it warmer.

For those of you in colder climates, stop snickering :-)

Happy Holidays,

Thanks for the warning. I had ice, not frost, on my car in Mesa last night. Some frost on my nice, big to,atones I bought but looks like the cement wall gave them some warmth. I'll cover tonight. Peppers should be okay up next to the house. I'm not going to worry about the stuff out in the open yard. Too much stuff to worry about.
