First Frost Expected Soon


It’s the time of year when we closely watch for overnight lows to fall to the 30s, as frost possibilities will become more likely later this week.

Clear skies and light winds overnight were the perfect recipe for cool temperatures Wednesday morning.

Western South Dakota had temps in the lower 30s and 30s appeared in central and eastern South Dakota as well.  We even had reporting stations in between these that had temperatures in the 20s in the Hills and more 30s in central and eastern KELOLAND.

These types of temperatures are typical this time of year, but they won’t stay this cold after all our average lows are in the low to middle 40s.

But we’re not that far off from when we get our first 32 degree low.  The average date of when we get our first 32 is split between the last week of September and the first week of October. 

If you didn’t hit the 30s this morning, there’s a better chance to get that low Saturday morning.  Keep that in mind if you want to extend the growing season around your house
