Tis the season for warm days and cool nights in New Brunswick and frost advisories have been posted for the last three nights in much of the province.

Environment Canada notes the temperature dropped to 1.3 C early this morning at the Greater Moncton International Airport – the lowest since mid-May.

The last time we fell to the freezing point or lower was 07 May.

However, my neighbourhood hasn’t experienced any frost yet and my tomato and strawberry plants are still doing well.

Incidentally, the average first fall frost date in Moncton is 27 September.

Edmundston was not surprisingly the cold spot in New Brunswick falling to -4.0 C early yesterday.
