A cold front passed through the region last week pushing morning temperatures down into the low to mid-30°s creating lettuce ice events. Remnants of the cold front were felt over the weekend, with lettuce ice appearing each morning. Harvesting delays of up to three hours continue this morning, potentially creating loading delays.
Forecast calls for weather to warm up with a light breeze this week. Temperatures may reach high 60°s to low 70°s during the day and nights dipping into low to mid-40°s in the region. Although we will see fewer ice events this week, the effects of all the preceding ice events will be felt for the next several weeks.
