Sub-32 5th Percentile

Posted: 13 Sep 2019 05:35 AM

Of current concern within the agricultural community is for an early frost to occur this September. The featured map depicts the date that 5% of the previous years had a sub 32 temperature on. Rephrasing, the 5th percentile date of first fall season sub 32 temperature. The dates shown are within the next week or two of now, so it is certainly time to start considering that such events are possible. The actual forecast though keeps temperatures very mild for this time of year and no present hint that such cold temperatures are possible over this period.
