Percentage of years experiencing a lethal frost event resulting in 10% apple flower bud damage (LT10) during seven phenological stages from Silvertip (budbreak) to Petalfall (anthesis). Frost risk represents the percentage of model-years (10 models × 30 years) in which at least one freeze event occurred during each development stage in each period. During a given year, freeze events can occur for multiple phenological stages. Future periods are based on RCP8.5
