First air frost of the 2014/15 season


Recommended Posts

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.

Didnt get an air frost last night,there was some cloud floating about at times and the temp only got down to 0.6c but that was the coldest temp ive recorded so far this season.

 

I will surely to god get an air frost tonight though,currently clear and there has hardly been a cloud in the sky all day, temp 1.0c

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'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!

Hardest frost so far min -4.8c

Checked back, as suspected this was the lowest reading since 23/11/13 when -7.3c, nothing below -3c last 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.
