Landscape and Nursery - Frost/Freeze Data

We have had several frosts now in the mid-state area in Delaware. The following are tables of frost freeze data from NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) for DE and recent low temperatures from the Dover weather station. Landscapers and nursery personnel can use the NOAA table to advise clients on the likelihood of first frost and last frost in the state.
