First Fall Freeze Dates

With summer coming to a close, temperatures are dropping into unfamiliar territory. The summer of 2012 will, no doubt, go down as one of the hottest and driest summers on record for Nebraska and the United States.

This morning’s temperatures were some of the chilliest temperatures since the end of April. This had me curious about our average first date of the fall freeze. Here is a graphic displaying the average date of the first fall freeze. In other words, the first time the low temperatures drop below 32 degrees.






After the hot and dry summer, these chilly morning temperatures are going to come as a shock to the system. Here is a list of the last spring freeze dates where temperatures dropped below 32 degrees.




April 23, 2012 – 31 degrees

It is that time of the year again. Fall is just around the corner, officially starting at 9:49 central time Saturday morning. Enjoy these last few days of summer. Before long, well be shoveling snow and thinking about those hot, dry days of summer.
