National Weather Service: Growing season over
After consultation with agricultural extension agents across the Baltimore/Washington Weather Forecast Office's county warning area ... it has been determined that the growing season for frost and freeze sensitive vegetation has ended.
For those areas such as St. Marys county Maryland where a hard freeze over the majority of the county has not occurred ... the lack of daylight and the end of harvest are the primary reasons for declaring the growing season over.
Thus... the Baltimore/Washington National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office will not issue anymore frost advisory and/or freeze watch and warning products until the growing season starts again next spring.
Interestingly, it's not only St. Mary's County which has yet to record a freeze. The lowest reading at Reagan National Airport thus far this fall is only 36 (from November 6).
