    Oh dear no action in this thread for 6 weeks says it all.. with only 8 days left, I suspect a number of places will be waiting until December to see their first air frost - some the first ground frost.

     

    Last November delivered a number of ground frosts and handful of air frosts, this year apart from a couple of days 4-5 Nov, so far its been very mild. So much for frost and fog..

     

    I hope December redeems things markedly.

     

    Who is still awaiting first air frost and indeed ground frost?

    Ive had no air frost so far this Autumn,taking the year 2014 as a whole ive had a grand total of 2 slight air frosts so far. I have not had an Autumn air frost since late Nov 2012,last autumn airfrost before that was late Nov 2010. Air frosts for my location during Autumn are becoming increasing rare it seems to me.

     

    There is a good chance though i might see an air frost tonight or/and tomorrow night, clear with a temp of 3.6c atm.

    Only a handful of years have had a completely air frost-free autumn here, namely 2011 and 2009 recently. I think early this week might change things but the closest I've come so far is 0.5C on November 06th.

    I spoke too soon, looks like a number of places who haven't seen an air frost this autumn won't have to wait until December. Tonight should deliver.

    Still waiting here too. We managed 0.2C earlier in the month but apart from that we haven't come close.

     

    A small chance tonight if it remains clear and the wind keeps down. 3.5C at the moment.

    I made a mistake this morning, new non Davis data, the min was -1.1C if the reading is correct, would make it my first air frost since 24 March.

    I've just noticed the daffodil and hyacinths have started to shoot up above the ground by a couple of cm. Hopefully a few cold  and frosty nights will stop them thinking its the end of winter!

    First air frost of the season was the night before last with the temperature just getting to -0.2 around sunrise.  Colder last night with a minimum of -0.7, but above freezing by daybreak as the cloud and rain arrived - if anything somewhat earlier than most forecasts were showing.
