Another round of frost and freeze warnings for Vermont

The map of freeze warnings and frost advisories for October 5, 2011 from the National Weather Service Office in Burlington, Vermont
After our initial round of frosty weather back in mid September, more substantial freeze warnings and frost advisories are back for the start of October.

We’ve got another batch of cold air moving in over the next couple of days, so the National Weather Service Office in Burlington has put up freeze warnings throughout the area.  Temperatures should be colder than last round with most areas in the 20s F, but since we’re into October now, that’s not all that surprising.  For those areas like the Northeast Kingdom and the Adirondacks that don’t have warnings up, it’s because they aren’t needed; for those colder areas with early dates for typical first frost, the growing season is considered to be over already.  Some of the details from the National Weather Service have been added below:
