So does anyone know if this is the first freeze warning of the [continental] United States?

There may have been a watch for the upper MW earlier but yeah, this is the first warning for the CONUS

Not sure about a warning but I was out in Reno at the start of August and some areas near Tahoe got right at freezing even then. They has some sort of advisories out for that.

Yeah, northeastern Minnesota had freeze warnings the last week of August.  Some places reported lows in the upper 20s.  Also frost advisories around there and then it also spread down into parts of northern WI and MI.  

I thought that northern Maine had a freeze warning issued one day last week already?   eusa_think.gif
