April Freeze Possible for Friday Night
Wrentham could see freezing temperatures Friday night, endangering planted crops and vegetation.
The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Freeze Watch for late Friday night through Saturday morning.
According to the NWS, Wrentham and much of Massachusetts, as well as Northern Connecticut and Rhode Island, could see temperatures in the upper 20s and 30s starting Friday midnight and continuing through 8am Saturday.
"A Freeze Watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible," the NWS warning reads. "These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation."
GardenGuides.com states that in possible freezing conditions, smaller plants should be moved indoors if possible. In order to protect larger plants, add extra mulch at the base or cover the plants with sheets or burlap.
