Getting ready to plant that garden? Check this first!

We have a delightful weekend coming up across North Carolina! I've heard a number of friends already say that they plan on working in the garden. Before putting out those tender plants, you might want to check this zonal map of average last freeze dates across North Carolina.

Based on statistics, there is a 10% chance that a frost will occur outside of the dates listed. Whether or not a specific plant will be damaged depends on the type of plant, the maturity of the plant, the temperature, the duration, as well as many other variables.

The forecast for Easter weekend calls for well above normal temperatures and dry weather. There is a chance of rain late next week. Your latest Weather on the Ones forecast has the details to take you through the weekend or through next week on News 14 Carolina.
