Don't see any frost warnings, but tonight's forecast calls for lows between 32 to 34 degrees in the pines tonight...
The wind Is going to blow strong all night is the most likely reason there is not a warning. I hope it does not my blueberry are coming out in flower.

Hopefully, you won't have to deal with that again until the fall.
I’d like to think so but May can be bad from time to time. May 19 and May 20 in 1992 was the freeze that crushed the blueberries in NJ. It went below 20 degrees and fried our entire blueberry crop on our farm. Cranberries were saved because of irrigation. That freeze even fried all the woods and made it look dormant again in the pines.
