Growers report little or no crop damage from cold

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -  

Citrus growers in California's Central Valley say they've made it through another cold night with little or no crop damage to their crops.
 
A spokesman for California Citrus Mutual -- a trade association for citrus growers -- says thanks to a cloud cover that rolled in Friday night, temperatures did not drop as low as expected.
 
Paul Story says temperatures in some areas did hit lows of 26 or 27 degrees early Saturday morning, but the temperatures started moving up a bit before they could cause damage.
 
Still, growers are preparing for at least two more nights of freezing temperatures.
 
The National Weather Service has a freeze warning in effect for the area until Monday morning.
