 Based on an average daily temperature of less than 5°C after July 1, the end of plant growth will be later than October 21 in southern Alberta and between October 1 and 21 in the other agricultural areas of Alberta. In parts of the mountains and in extreme northern areas the growing season may end earlier.

The growing season in the Peace Region extends later into the fall than in the surrounding areas. In the Peace Region towards the end of the growing season, the 30-year daily mean temperature normals suddenly dip below 5°C, then immediately bounce back above 5°C for another 5 to 7 days, and then drop below 5°C for the rest of the winter.
