Freeze Warning / Growing seasons in the Inland Northwest
Freeze Warnings are typically issued by the National Weather Service
when freezing temperatures are expected during the growing season,
which is defined as the dates between the average first freeze and last
freeze dates for a geographic area. However, every growing season is
different, so it's possible Freeze Warnings may be issued outside of the
usual growing season. For example if the first 3 weeks in April are
unusually warm and free of any freezes in the Spokane Area, then a
freeze warning may be needed prior to May 1st if freezing temperatures
are expected.

Growing seasons in the Inland Northwest:

Wenatchee Area, Moses Lake Area, Lewiston-Clarkston Valley
Apr 15 - Oct 15

Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Area, Okanogan Valley
May 1- Sep 30

Palouse and Upper Columbia Basin
May 15 - Sep 30

Mountain zones including the east slopes of the Cascades, Okanogan
Highlands, Northeast Washington Mountains, North Idaho Panhandle,
Central Panhandle Mountains, Camas Prairie
