Late Freeze

The latest first freeze of autumn in Fargo is October 24.  That was set in 1994.  If you’re curious we’ve had the first frost of the season this late in the season even back in 1911, so any talk about this autumn being unique would not be correct.  The so-called official climate site in Fargo is up at the Airport where the low did drop to 33 degrees on Saturday morning, so frost was seen but at the height of the thermometer, which is 2 meters, we came a degree shy.  We will have a few freeze threats this week, so the odds of making it until Sunday, the 24th,  without a 32 degree or lower temperature seems low, but as I am fond of saying, never say never when dealing with future weather.
