This is YOUR thread to announce when the first frost has occurred at your location and to discuss frosts and growing seasons in general.

Apparently, there's been no frost at my house yet, as the plants are still alive. We've escaped two widespread frosts in our area. At almost the same elevation but less than 10 miles to the NE, Duluth International Airport has seen at least two frosts this season: 30F on September 15th and 31F on October 1st. Cloquet, at a similar distance and elevation, had 28F on the 15th of September, 30F the next day, and 28F on October 1st. Sky Harbor (in the Park Point neighborhood) narrowly missed them with 33F on the 15th and the 1st. Elsewhere in Minnesota. Indeed, most stations in Minnesota had a frost on the 15th-16th; the temperature sunk to 19F in International Falls. Even 41% of Iowa was affected by the September frost.

The median date for the first frost at Duluth International Airport is September 23rd; 80% of first frosts occur between September 13th and October 4th. The earliest was on August 27th, while the latest was on October 10th. Just five or so miles away, Duluth Harbor records a median nearly twenty days ahead of the airport of October 2nd, and in many years the first frost falls in November (the latest was on November 11th).

I'll tell you when it gets freezing in Nice, but you might have to wait a couple of years for that Last time was in Feb 2010, with -0.9°C, before that in Dec 2009 with -1.6°C, and before that.......in December 2005 ! So it's not exactly common here

No ground or air frost here with none in the forecast. I think somewhere between October 10th and 20th is the average.

We supposedly reached 30°F a week and a half ago, but all the plants look fine. Either the frost wasn't enough to damage the plants or the weather station was in a localized frost valley. Many of the other non-offical weather stations didn't reach below freezing.

I don't see any temperatures close to freezing for the next week, but I assume we'll get a frost by the end of the month.

I think we're gonna be in for another rough winter. Pattern is repeating itself again. Maybe not so much snow, but cold yes
