No freeze yet on Vermont’s tallest peak, a record
UNDERHILL, Vt. (AP) — Vermont’s tallest mountain has set a record for the latest date without the temperature dropping below freezing.
MyNBC5.com reports the 4,393-foot Mount Mansfield hasn’t seen freezing temperatures since late May, marking the latest known date without a hard freeze.
The National Weather Service says that previously, the latest freeze on record for the mountain came on Oct. 6, 2011.
The first freeze usually comes in mid-September. The coldest it’s been so far this fall was 37 degrees in late September.
And the record continues. The forecast for the next several days does not include temperatures that approach freezing.
