Late August is the time that colder locations expect to see their first taste of frost. Such was the case on this date in 1987, when thermometer dropped to record levels in a few places. Although no frost was recorded, St. Johnsbury reached 35, while the next morning Burlington broke its record at 40. But the colder valleys did get frost with readings like 31 in West Burke and Chelsea, VT.
