Frost on Apple Blossoms — Spring?

There is a weather warning for Regina tonight — frost.
A cool airmass over Southern Saskatchewan along with clear skies and light winds tonight will allow for the development of frost across much of the region overnight. Temperatures of zero to minus 3c are forecast across the warning area tonight with widespread frost.
Will today's apple blossoms survive that predication from Environment Canada?

Last year, we had only five misshapen apples from this tree. High winds and rain stormed through in early spring. They beat the blossoms to the soggy ground. No fruit formed.
