We Stand Corrected on the Frost

It’s not a Frost Advisory but we’re advising you of the frost.

It turns out, Schuylkill County can’t go under a Frost Advisory until May 1. That’s when the growing season officially begins here.

The growing season is determined by the mean date of the last freeze for a county.

But what’s really weird is that in many places bordering Schuylkill County, the growing season starts about 3 weeks before it does here.

That’s why, on Monday morning, counties bordering Schuylkill to the south and west all went under a Frost Advisory or Freeze Warning.

But as we stated yesterday, just because National Weather Service doesn’t place Schuylkill County under a Frost Advisory because of some climatology data, it doesn’t mean people who’ve already gotten a jump start on the growing season shouldn’t be advised of the potential for frost.
