Missouri frost/freeze probabilities guide

Three types of freezes are described by weather experts:

  • Light freeze — Temperatures between 28 and 32 degrees F, causing little or no damage to most plants, heavy damage to tender plants and to semi-hardy plants in low lands
  • Moderate freeze — Temperatures between 24 and 28 degrees F, causing some damage to fruit blossoms and to tender and semi-hardy plants
  • Severe freeze — Temperatures less than 24 degrees F, causing heavy damage to all plants
