Cold temperatures generally around 10 degrees below normal are expected to continue through the weekend. Overnight lows will be especially cold in wind protected locations. Saturday morning is expected to be the coldest morning with the combination of very cold temperatures and lighter winds. Temperatures across the coastal valleys are expected to drop into the mid to upper 20s in some areas resulting in a potentially damaging freeze event. Even locations near the coast will drop in the low to mid 30s where there will be the potential for frost. Overnight lows Sunday are only expected to be a degree or two warmer.
Farmers and anyone with sensitive plants or animals should prepare for several nights of very cold and potentially sub-freezing temperatures. The greatest threats for widespread sub-freezing temperatures will be Friday night and Saturday night as winds subside. There could be in excess of six hours of temperatures below freezing across some valley areas potentially causing significant damage to plants and crops.
