The National Weather Service is predicting temperatures to drop to 22F by the morning of April 4 in the Winchester area. For the bud phenology that I’ve seen in the area, we will probably be spared from having very much damage.
Apples are still dormant with a few early blooming cultivars at silver or green tip. Even at green tip, there should only be 10% damage when temperatures drop to 18F. Peaches with a little pink showing may be susceptible to a low level ~10% of damage. Cherries are still in stage 1 or 2, and should be able to withstand temperatures down to 17F with minimal damage. So, fingers crossed that it doesn’t get any colder than predicted. Temperatures are forecasted to be more “spring-like” next week!
Here are pdf links for the Washington State University fact sheets on the critical temperatures for flower buds:
Additionally, Michigan State University has adapted the WSU critical temperature fact sheets into this easy-to-read fact sheet.
MSU has also put together an excellent set of resources about freezes and frosts in fruit crops.
