(Tom Coomes/ABC 57 Meteorologist) A hard killing freeze Wednesday morning will have a lasting impact beyond feeling cold for a couple mornings.

The hard freeze will likely stunt or damage much of the fruit crop in the area that has bloomed early. This phenomenon is happening more as early springs warms, leaving orchards and vineyards prone to an April freeze. Temperatures rise gradually through the end of the week, 50s and 60s. Rain showers look likely Saturday and next week trends much warmer as 70s return.
