Last Freeze

I mentioned this in this blog recently, but several people have asked me about my thoughts of when our last freeze would be, especially considering how dry the central and western portion of North Dakota have been in recent months.  As many of you know, even Fargo with relatively wet soils recorded two record lows last week.  Dry soil attribute to lower temperatures and even though Fargo in no way is abnormally dry, the dryness of the region, probably helped get Fargo to those record lows.  When our last freeze will be is tough to forecast, but I will continue to say that if we remain dry, odds favor a later than average freeze.
