... 2017 NWS Atlanta frost/freeze program to begin March 1...

After consultation with the uga department of crop and soil
sciences and re-evaluating the temperatures over the last 30 days,
NWS Atlanta will be starting the Spring frost/freeze program
early.

The Spring frost/freeze program will begin Wednesday, March 1 for
all but the following northeast Georgia Mountain counties: Fannin,
Union, towns, white, Lumpkin, Dawson, Pickens and Gilmer. For
these eight counties, the Spring frost/freeze program will begin
early on April 1.

The frost/freeze program is primarily intended for agricultural
interests. Due to the warm temperatures and the early agricultural
growth so far this year, it is appropriate to provide this service
slightly early.

A freeze watch is issued when there is a 50 percent or greater
chance of minimum temperatures at or below 32 degrees during the
growing season, and can be issued 48 hours in advance.

A freeze warning is issued when there is a 80 percent or greater
chance of minimum temperatures at or below 32 degrees during the
growing season, and can be issued 24 hours in advance.

A frost advisory is issued when there is a 80 percent or greater
chance of minimum temperatures generally between 33 to 37 degrees
and frost is expected during the growing season, and can be issued
up to 24 hours in advance.
