First Hard Freeze

Fargo recorded the first hard freeze of the season on Friday, September 28.  Oddly it did not occur in the morning, in fact, temperatures were above freezing in the morning.  Instead, the first freeze at 32 degrees and then the first hard freeze of 28 degrees both occurred during the evening hours.  Then temperatures rose after midnight as come clouds moved back into the region.  If it was not for the clouds, low to mid 20s would have likely occurred.  That 28 degree low was only the third hard freeze in the month of September this century at the Fargo Airport.  Of course not the entire city recorded temperatures that cold, but officially, the growing season is over.
