The first freeze of the year is expected to cover the Northeast with frost early this week.

Temperatures are expected to return to normal later in the week, according to AccuWeather.

A high pressure area is going to form across the Northeast, bringing several dry days of sunshine and some clouds, keeping temperatures between 4 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit — below the average afternoon temperatures, AccuWeather noted.

“Clear skies and calm winds will bring the first widespread frost and freeze to the interior Northeast early Tuesday morning,” said Andy Mussoline, AccuWeather Meteorologist.

These temperatures will bring an end to the growing season for many people, as the nights are expected to be rather chilly as a result of the cool afternoon temperatures.

The Northeast usually sees its first freeze of the season about Oct. 15, according to The Weather Channel. The first freeze typically comes around Sept. 15 for some areas of the country, including the Rockies, Intermountain West, as well as parts of the northern Plains and Upper Midwest.

Monday night, temperatures are expected to drop to the upper 20s and lower 30s across North-central Pennsylvania to northern New England and the St. Lawrence Valley, which is expected to carry over into Tuesday, AccuWeather noted.

As that’s happening, areas of frost could develop in other parts of the Northeast, with the only exception being along the Great Lakes where temperatures are expected to remain in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Even with this being the case, temperatures are expected to get back to usual later in the week.

“A brief warmup will occur late this week across the Northeast ahead of a weak cold front,” Mussoline said. “Mainly dry and more seasonable conditions will settle back in Friday and into the upcoming weekend in wake of the front.”

Wednesday and Thursday will likely be the warmest days of the week, as temperatures are expected to increase to above-average numbers for mid-October.

New York City and Washington, DC levels could reach 70 or above, while places out west can expect to see mid to upper 60s.
