First Frost for localized areas?

Saturday night is going to be the coldest night since May 19th when we had our last freeze. Certain locations will have their first frost, luckily it won't be a devastating crop killing frost. It will just serve as a reminder that the winter season is going to come in early this year considering this is over a month early. Places like Sparta, Walpack, Hopatcong, Dover (base of the mountain), Vernon, West Milford, High Point, and usual cold spots of Northwest Jersey look to be in the running. Like I said in my July 23rd post:

"To make a long story short, it's a cold year. It's going to continue to be cold. And the summer will come to very fast end once September hits, and winter may come even earlier this year than it did last year on October 27th. With a weak El Nino forming, negative PDO, AO, and NAO this winter will be the snowiest in the last ten years."

It's going to be a long ride though this winter, something that could potentially last the next 10-20 years. This could very well be abrupt climate change happening before our eyes. One thing is for sure, the sun is most likely the cause since it ALONE is the main driver in climate change.
