Possible first frost day

There is a forecast low of -1°C for Monday night/Tuesday morning.

This would be the first frost of the season.

In the 10 years of the UW weather station the first frost day has ranged between October 2nd and October 28th, with the average coming in around the 11th.

But no matter if it does actually go below zero at the station, depending on your particular location there is a good chance that you will get frost and you should make appropriate arrangements for your delicate plants.

What was the year that UW Weather Station recorded a frost on October 2?

We live in the wonderful "micro climate" of Uptown Waterloo. I love it. It takes a really crisp night for us to get frost here. Thank goodness for big trees!
