There has been some very cold weather in the Central Valley recently and growers are having to keep a very close eye on their crops. However, many feel that they are in a better position this year than they were at the same time in 2011.

Citrus grower Keith Nilmeier said, "Nice warm storms early in the month, so that kind of helps keep our ground temperatures up and our fruit temperatures up, because we haven't had much cold weather leading into this."

Some growers had wind machines and water pumps running overnight to keep crops from freezing.

The freeze warning has now ended.
