Frost greets final day of World Ag Expo

Yes, it's still winter and Mother Nature made sure to remind Central Valley growers and attendees of the World Ag Expo of that fact overnight, as frost descended on the vast Central Valley.

Temperatures in the mid to upper 20s have been reported around the San Joaquin Valley overnight, threatening some crops that had already started sprouting and blooming after unseasonably warm weather over the past week.

Now the temperatures have dropped to unseasonably cool temperatures.

Some areas of the valley could see frost again tonight.

But that's not keeping people from the World Ag Expo for its final day today. They have just remembered to bring jackets today.
