It was a shock to me because it happened during the evening hours.

That's interesting because you seem to have more diurnal range than must of the NE. Not really an oceanic trait.

I know what you mean though. I feel my climate has a bit more "Continental-ness" than most Oceanic climates on here.

Here's my first frost last year:

Weather History for Chicopee, MA | Weather Underground

37 on the 7th and a few more nights in the 30s, then 30F on the 12th and then the bigger shock, 22F the next morning. Annoying bicycling weather.

That's the night that I'm referring to. It was 32 F/0 C before midnight...dropped down to 26 F/-3 C the following morning.

It isn't like that here, it's just random. That is why it's a shock.

What a weird place name. I looked that place up and it doesn't look like I thought it would.

It can be warm the night before the first frost here. My point is that the 1-3 C nights up to a month earlier (sometimes even 2 months earlier), won't make the 0C such a shock.
