The typical first fall freeze is right around the corner

- Amazing as it may sound, we are now in our last few days of September which means we are into fall and not far from cooler weather.  In fact, it’s around this time of year that the first freeze hits much of the state.  While a couple of spots in northern Minnesota have already hit the freeze mark, most areas have barely seen the 30s.  This is one reason why the fall color is already a little behind schedule.  It takes mild sunny days and cool calm nights for leaves to change color in full force and we just haven’t seen much of that type of weather so far in September.  Here are the official climate locations that have already seen their first freeze…

Only a few locations and ALL located in the northern part of the state.  The metro is about 2 weeks away from the average first freeze.  The top image is where the region stands on their average first fall freeze.
