NWS Frost/Freeze Program ends for Peachtree City office for season

Now that many parts of northern and central Georgia have experienced frost and we have reached November 20, the climatological median date for a freeze in the region, the National Weather Service notes that they are no longer issuing frost/freeze warnings for their forecast area. The idea is that this time of year most plants have already been killed by frost and so warnings are no longer useful as we go into winter. Other NWS forecast offices may have different date thresholds, and ones in northern areas stopped their frost/freeze programs a while back, while in southern areas those offices may continue to issue freeze warnings for a few weeks yet. Make sure you know what criteria your local NWS office uses so you don’t get surprised by frost.
