A frost advisory has turned into a freeze warning for both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties Tuesday night into Wednesday morning with overnight temperatures dropping between 17 and 32 degrees early Wednesday morning. Freezing temperatures can kill crops and harm outdoor pets of livestock.

Stay warm. Protect sensitive plants and bring in pets. Even colder overnight low temps are forecast tonight. Clear skies and less winds will allow for more efficient radiative cooling. #CAwx pic.twitter.com/VzB66F4PAk
