ILLINOIS (RFD) — Farmers have been against the clock this harvest season to beat the first significant frost/freeze of the fall.
This weekend is bringing a real possibility for frost in parts of Illinois. Temperatures in southern Illinois will hover in the 50s and Chris Miller with the National Weather Service says this is the part of the month when we first get to the freezing temperatures that bring a frost.
While the weekend forecast leaves the possibility for the first frost, Miller says there’s good news on the horizon as they are showing dry trends to finish off the month of October.
Friday rains could bring some stormy weather with them. Miller says the storm center is keeping an eye on things in that realm as rains could extend from Illinois and Indiana to Louisiana and Mississippi.
