Frost Events

In many areas of Georgia, cold temperatures in late fall, winter and spring can pose a threat to row crops, fruit trees and horticultural plants. Exposure of sensitive crops to freezing temperatures (below 32° F) can result in significant damage and, in some cases, total crop loss. For example, open peach and blueberry blooms are typically damaged at 28-29° F and below, although green fruit may be damaged at higher temperatures. Susceptibility to frost depends on the health and growth stage of the plants, and the intensity and duration of the frost events.

The terms frost and freeze are often used synonymously, and frost events fall into two categories, namely: radiation and advective. Radiation frost is characterized by a clear sky, calm or very little wind, temperature inversion, a low dew point temperature and an air temperature that typically falls below 32° F during the night. Cooling occurs due to energy loss through radiant exchange during clear, calm nights (Snyder and Melo-Abreu, 2005). The temperature falls faster near the radiating surface, causing a temperature inversion, i.e., temperature increases with height above the ground. Radiation frost is the most common type of frost in Georgia. Advective frost occurs when a mass of cold air moves into an area and displaces warmer air that was present prior to the weather change. It is associated with cloudy conditions, moderate to strong winds, no temperature inversion and low humidity.

The potential for frost damage depends on local conditions. Both monitoring and local knowledge can prevent and/or minimize frost damage. Most farmers and growers have a good idea about areas of cold spots — where cold air settles - within their fields. As the air near the ground cools, it becomes denser and flows back down the slope. Generally, low spots where cold air settles are not suitable for planting frost-sensitive crops such as blueberries and peaches unless a frost protection system is installed. Also, areas where the natural or modified topography prevents cold air drainage from the site should be avoided. Because ground fog forms in low spots first, a good rule of thumb is to avoid places where ground fog forms early. Review local topographical maps before planting frost-sensitive crops on high-risk sites.

Frost affects different aspects of agricultural and horticultural production. There are more economic losses to frost damage than to any other weather-related phenomenon (White and Haas, 1975). Information about dates of the last frost events in the spring can help farmers decide when to plant their crops. Similarly, information on early frost dates in the fall can be useful for deciding when to harvest.

This extension circular is a compilation of first and last frost dates (Table 1) based on temperatures recorded at different weather stations of the Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring Network (AEMN). The first frost event typically occurs in the fall. To determine this event, a computer program was used to search the weather records and identify the date between September 1 and December 31 when a particular station first recorded a temperature at or below 32o F. For the last frost event, the program identified the last date between January 1 and May 31 when the temperature was at or below 32° F.

The AEMN has more than 75 automated weather stations across Georgia (Figure 1). A list of the local site names are shown in Table 2. This circular will be updated every year as new stations are installed and additional data become available. Additional weather information can be found at www.georgiaweather.net.

Key Terms

Dewpoint temperature (or dewpoint): The temperature to which a given parcel of air must be cooled at constant pressure and constant water vapor content for saturation to occur.

Temperature inversion: A layer in which temperature increases with altitude. During daytime, the radiant energy of the sun warms the earth's surface. Air temperature decreases with height above the surface during the day. However, during nighttime, especially under clear skies, the earth’s surface, including plants and soil, radiates more heat to the sky than it receives, resulting in lower temperatures. Warmer air is now located above the cool air at the surface and this condition is referred to as a temperature inversion.
