Bring in the dogs! Take care of your “sensitive” vegetation! Pour yourself some Irish coffee and snuggle up with a beautiful person to stay warm! Frost is coming.
It won’t be as cold as the end of January, when this photo was taken at Prairie Creek. But it will be cold enough that the National Weather Service issued the following:
Head’s up for some cold nights and frost…
Frost is likely Thursday through Saturday nights for protected inland valleys were low temperatures during the early morning hours may drop into the mid 30s. Areas protected from the wind and low lying areas may drop below freezing into the low 30s. This will be caused by a deep through of low pressure that will develop over the Great Basin later this week, brining much cooler and drier air over NW California. Longer nights and dry air will result in good radiational cooling, bringing cold overnight temperatures for interior valleys and along the coast.
THOSE WISHING TO PROTECT TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE VEGETATION SHOULD
CONSIDER THOSE PREPARATIONS AT THIS TIME AND KEEP INFORMED OF
LATER FORECASTS AND POTENTIAL ADVISORIES IN SUBSEQUENT DAYS.
