PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
National Weather Service MOUNT HOLLY NJ
1046 AM EDT Sun Oct 18 2020

...END OF THE FROST FREEZE PROGRAM IN PORTIONS OF THE LEHIGH
VALLEY AND PORTIONS OF NORTHERN NEW JERSEY...

Average temperatures this morning across the following counties
fell to or below 32 degrees.

In Pennsylvania:
Berks
Lehigh
Northampton
Western Montgomery
Upper Bucks

In New Jersey:
Warren
Hunterdon
Morris
Somerset

The Frost-Freeze program of the National Weather Service is to
warn local growers and gardeners of the potential FIRST damaging
frost or freeze during the fall for a give area prior to the
average first freeze date. This allows people to take preventative
measures for plants and crops against cold temperatures causing
frost and or freeze conditions.

The program ends after the first freeze, just as we experienced
early this morning. The program may end as well, if the date of
the average first freeze has been surpassed despite no freeze
occurring.

Therefore we are ending the Frost Freeze program for the areas
listed above and will no longer issue Frost or Freeze products
until Spring 2021 after the median date of the last Spring freeze.
