Overnight Freeze May Not Affect Crops

Fruit growers in the Grand Valley can relax a bit this noon.

Several orchard owners say they aren't expecting any damage from the overnight freezing temperatures.

With temperatures dipping to the upper 20's in some parts of the grand valley, fans were running throughout much of the morning in Palisade and east Orchard Mesa, funneling the warmer air down around the trees.

However other farmers only saw temps dropping to around 31 degrees.
