... Progress of the 2016 fall frost/freeze headline season over
northern and eastern Maine...

Two frost nights have been observed this month over much of
Aroostook County as well as much of northern Somerset and
Piscataquis counties. Subsequently, we will no longer be issuing
frost advisories or freeze warnings for this portion of the
region. The program remains active from central Piscataquis and
northern Penobscot counties southward to the downeast coast where
only one or no frost nights have been observed. The issuance of
frost advisories and/or freeze warnings ends with the observance
of two fall frost nights or one fall freeze night over portions of
the region when beyond one month prior to the average frost date
(which ranges from early September across the far northwest to
early to mid October along the downeast coast) for each portion of
the region.

However, frost wording without headlines will continue to be used
in the forecast for all of the region (including areas where the
season has expired) until the program ends for all of the region
(usually the downeast coast is last by mid october). This will
allow gardeners who have taken protective measures with their
garden in areas where the fall frost/freeze headline program ended
to get additional info regarding the next potential of frost/freeze
nights. Generally, "areas of frost" wording will be equivalent to
frost advisory thresholds and "widespread frost" to freeze warning
thresholds. Also, be alert to forecast low temperatures of 32 or
less with breezy or windy conditions that will not likely not be
accompanied by the formation of frost.

Follow-up statements will be issued when the fall frost/freeze
season progressively ends for each portion of the region with the
final statement issued when the season ends completely for the
region.
