The Q&A Archives: Last frost in NYC

Question: Where can I get information on the last frost date or average last frost date for the New York City area?

Answer: The following web page from NOAA has maps for spring and fall frost dates. Remember that they are averages so any given year can be earlier or later. An experienced gardening neighbor may be able to give you a good idea of what to expect in your particular microclimate; microclimate can vary the frost by quite a bit (maybe a week one way or the other) from the average as well.
