I should have been more specific I used Mobile, AL

Point is to back up what Ryan said. The last five years there is no doubt frosts have been coming earlier. I'm not saying it is the new "normal". I was simply backing up what Ryan said, which is 32F has been coming earlier the last few winters. I can post the data if you want, but when you look at long term, 30 years, Mobile airport got 32F later in Nov than it has the last few years, and the last 32F temps come slightly later in March. Of course it can reverse itself over the next 20 to 30 years, I was simply confirming his feeling that 32F was happening earlier. There is no denying that when looking at the last 5 years.
