6-8 weeks before last frost

How do I find out the last frost date for my area (Windham, CT)

I began searching the web for local information and it's surprisingly hard to find this. I turned up something at a couple of sites, see below:

Last frost dates, selected cities
Garden Web

Number after the state is days of growing season
