Gloucester MA first frost date?

Looking at this image, courtesy of NOAA -- I think our first frost for the region is most likely to happen in early October, somewhere between 10/1 and 10/15. I'll try to track down and see if I can find historical data to back this up.

Do you usually pick your gardens green tomatoes after the first frost?

Based on some historical data from this West Gloucester weather station
2009 first week Nov
2008 last week Oct
2007 last week Oct

So maybe late October/early November is the new date to keep in mind for Gloucester?
