The National Weather Service in Binghamton has declared an end to the 2010 growing season for a large portion of the Twin Tiers. The reason for this: the widespread, killing frost that developed late on Saturday October 9th into early Sunday October 10th.
If you are someone who has agricultural interests, this is important because the National Weather Service will NOT be issuing Frost and Freeze Advisories again until the growing season begins again next Spring.
If you have a small garden or you just like to keep temperature sensitive vegetation such as certain kinds of flowers outside during the fall, it is especially important to pay attention to forecast low temperatures. Sensitive plants left uncovered and subsequently exposed to freezing temperatures will be killed if the thermometer dips to 32 degrees or below.
