Public Information Statement
National Weather Service New York NY
507 AM EST Mon Nov 21 2022


The 2022 growing season for New York City, southern Nassau County
and Hudson County has come to an end today, as it marks 10 days
after the median date of the first fall freeze. This means that
frost or freeze headlines will no longer be issued for these
counties / zones for the 2022 season.

The New York NY National Weather Service Office participated in
an experiment that redefined the end of the local Frost-Freeze
Program for the purpose of simplified customer usability through a
more streamlined process. Frost-Freeze headlines were issued for
threats of a frost or freeze during the 2022 growing season, up to
75-90th percentile of the median first fall freeze - basically up
to 10 days after the median first fall freeze, as established by
using 30-year temperature averages.

The Frost-Freeze program of the National Weather Service is
designed to alert local growers and gardeners of the potential of
a damaging frost or freeze for a given area during the
climatologically defined growing season. This allows people to
take preventative measures for plants and crops against potential
damaging temperatures.

These were the end dates for Frost Advisories or Freeze Warnings
issuance for the 2022 growing season across the NWS New York, NY
forecast area:

October 31st:
Interior Southern Connecticut, Lower Hudson Valley, Interior NE
New Jersey.

November 11th:
Suffolk, Northern Nassau, and Southern Westchester Counties,
Coastal Connecticut, and Eastern Bergen, Essex, and Union counties

November 21st:
New York City, Southern Nassau County and Hudson County
