First, this Southern Michigan weather forecast product is from
Weather Underground


..Freeze warning remains in effect from 10 PM this evening to
8 am EDT Monday...

Hazardous weather...

 * temperatures will fall below freezing after 11 PM.

 * By Monday morning most locations will see temperatures in the
   25 to 30 degree range.

 * A widespread frost is expected.


 * damage to unprotected tender vegetation is likely to occur.

 * Damage to the buds and Flowers on fruit trees could also

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

 * a freeze warning is issued when freezing temperatures are
   forecast to threaten outdoor plants. Those with agricultural
   interests in the warned area are advised to protect tender
   vegetation. Also... potted plants normally left outdoors
   should be covered or brought inside away from the cold.

We've had an unusually colder spring this year with delayed
leaf-out on trees, but temperatures in the last 2-3 weeks moderated to
the point that I would expect significant fruit tree
flowering has taken place, or is taken place in
the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.

Because of timing and the duration of this freeze
expected this evening in Michigan, tonight's meteorological
freeze event is likely to be profoundly damaging to Michigan
agriculture.    Southern Wisconsin and Northern Indiana, Illinois and Ohio
will probably have similar impacts from the freeze event.

Here is the extent of winter weather warnings (in white):

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
