ST. LOUIS (April 14, 2014) The spring freeze is raising concerns for growers of apples, peaches, grapes and other fruit as temperatures in the 70s and 80s in recent days gave way to highs in the 40s in much of the lower Midwest on Monday, with even colder temperatures on the way.
The National Weather Service issued freeze warnings for parts of six states including Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas and Illinois.
The weather service projected low temperatures Monday night and again Tuesday night in the mid- to upper-20s in parts of Kansas, Missouri and Illinois, which could damage peach and apple crops, even grapes for wineries.
