Must say to have experienced SNOW showers while out on a hay ride with my daughter getting pumpkins yesterday afternoon was so WILD, everyone at the local pumpkin patch (including my self) were just beside them selves with disbelief of what they were seeing/experiencing on the 18th day of October ohmy.gif

Here is a picture I snapped with my phone during one of the heaviest showers❄️

Brrrrrr ohmy.gif

According to my handy dandy weather station I bottomed out this morning at "28.6" just prior to 7am, which seems pretty accurate as my neighbors bird bath and dogs water bowl are iced over along with some local neighborhood Wx-station obs via Underground are very close to what mine is showing.

My Realative Humidity remained pretty high overnight so with all the moisture/water vapor in the air the FROST is as one would assume VERY heavy this morning! Almost looked like a fresh coating of snow tongue.gif

Islip low was 29°. October 30th was the earliest going under 30° at Islip. Beat that by almost 2 weeks!

Bridgeports low of 30° was first time hitting 30 or colder since 1997.

Danbury hit 21° and records back to 1998 shows that is the coldest October temp.

White Plains dropped to 27°. Last time was 1988 getting that cold in October.

So it's been about a decade+ depending where you were to get these temps in October Impressive.


Actual Low temps today

I'm sort of stunned with the over night lows from last night (upper 20's) here IMBY that both my Cherry Tomato and Jalapeño plant made it thru unscathed, not even a mark on them and both of these plants generally get bit rather easily (in years past with just a heavy frost) and my weather station was for certain reading pretty accurate with the BELOW freezing reading because as I mentioned in an earlier post both my neighbors bird bath and dogs water bowl were completely frozen over this morning.

Hey buddy.....not a bit of wind during that overnight period as to one of the reasons why the frost was able to become soooo thick and heavy for the following morning.

Who knows man (gonna be filed as an unsolved mystery) haha wink.gif

Will say however it was sweet this morning as I picked another large batch of both maters and peppers.

Apologies for responding to such an old thread, but was looking through some old media and found a video of snow. On October 18th. blink.gif.
