How might expected freeze affect Mid-South wheat?

April freeze could affect Arkansas wheat.  

I’ve gotten several calls over the last day or so about possible freeze damage for Saturday morning (April 20). The National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for much of central and northeast Arkansas for the early morning hours of Saturday morning, with most forecasts calling for temperatures dropping to the mid-30s, but above freezing. With temperatures above freezing we don’t anticipate any problems, but as the wind drops Saturday morning, there will likely be variation in temperatures from one point to another based on elevation, so there is a potential some areas could get to freezing or below.
