As we near the end of April, temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s are becoming increasingly unpopular here in West Central Ohio.

As a matter of fact, temperatures are expected to drop near freezing both Wednesday and Thursday night. Here is a look at The anticipated low temperatures Thursday morning.
With temperatures that cold this time of year it’s important to protect any sensitive plants. And even though it may seem as if this is late in the season to be seeing frost/freezing conditions, it’s still pretty early based on historical averages.
