Illinois farmers escape early freeze event

Frost covered areas of Illinois this week, but the state climatologist says farmers escaped an early freeze event.

Trent Ford tells Brownfield Tuesday night was the greatest chance for an early freeze.

“There were a couple of stations that did get close. Monmouth got to 34, Macomb got to 33, but we didn’t see that below freezing mark.”

Ford saw reports of frosted fields as far south as I-64.
