Is it time for frost?

We’re coming off the dog days of summer and landing into a time of year where temperature fluctuations are common.

This weekend a large area of high pressure will help to swoop some cool air into our area. (See the clockwise rotation around the high helping to guide cool, Canadian air). While we won’t feel the brunt of the cool air, like our friends to the North, we could see our first temperature reading below 40° since April 5th for some of the inland counties!

Is it that time of year to see our first frost? Typically our first frost happens for the western counties at the end of the month. The eastern counties are skewed more toward November.

Clear skies, calm winds, and a dome of high pressure are good ingredients for inland counties to see cold overnight lows.
