I'm in zone 6A on the Blue Ridge Plateau at about 2,800 ft of elevation. I wonder how many days until the first HARD frost.

How about you?

We have already had a few frosts and even some light snow. Not certain when we had our first frost, but know we had a hard frost on Oct, 8, which killed off our last remaining tomato plants.

I'm located in West-Central MN Almost on the 3 State intersection of MN, ND & SD

We had not fallen below 42F until this morning. I still have tomatoes and cucumbers in the unheated greenhouse. Today when I get home from work I will bring in the Myer Lemon, Hibiscus and bonsai Bougainvillea because we may hit freezing tonight and tomorrow night before the rain returns. For us the first frost is usually mid-late October, earlier than Seattle because we are at 500' elevation.

First full moon +/- 1 day after October 15, except for 2016, when FM will be Oct 16.
Next likely is first New moon, after October 20, which will be Oct 30.
However, global warming is making the chance of a the first freeze in October less likely.
Just the way it is.

Zone 7a, Northern NJ. Overall very warm fall after a very hot summer. The leaves are just starting to turn a little yellow. The night are getting a little cooler, in the 40s but no sign of frost in the forecast for the next ten days at least. Days are in the high 60s. Still have tomatoes and eggplants slowly ripening. Cucumbers are all gone. Not sure if the remaining figs will ripen, might be too cold for them...

Sounds like y'all can really use some global warming.

On a scientific note, I was under the impression that global warming would cause later last freezes and earlier first freezes in the US despite the fact the average temperatures are higher. The theory is that the warmer it becomes, the slower the polar jet stream moves. A slower polar jet is more likely to develop unusual "kinks" which leads to both unseasonably cold and unseasonably warm periods.
