Early Freeze in Minnesota by 15 days.

Russ Steele

KSAX News in Long Prairie Minnesota has the details on the early regional freeze.

Farmers throughout Greater Minnesota prepared Wednesday for an overnight frost that could severely damage crops in a growing season that’s already been shortened by a late start. 

A normal frost isn’t seen until late Sept., but a freeze warning for several counties in the area could mean more work and less pay for crop farmers.

 Willmar Minnesota is just sixty miles from Long Prairie Minnesota. The first recorded fall freeze in Willmar is 1 October. It appears this could be a new early freeze record in the region by almost 15 days.  Stay tuned.
