Are We Skipping Fall This Year?
Yeah, it was cold this morning. And scraping frost off your windshield on the second day of fall is pretty unusual.
According to the National Weather Service, the average date of the first frost in Spokane over the past 127 years has been October 7. For the last 30 years, that average date has been October 3. Last year, it was September 29. The low temperature this morning in Pullman was 32° Fahrenheit. At the National Weather Service office in Spokane, it was 29° F.
I'm seeing a trend here, and it ain't global warming.
UPDATE: For new readers, Pullman had 1.5 inches of snow back on June 10, the latest snowfall ever on record. And there was widespread frost on July 11.
