Tracking the coldest temps we’ve seen so far this season….Bus stop temperatures could dip into the 20s and 30s Monday morning! This weather is all courtesy of an area of high pressure building in from the west. With our winds mainly from the north, that flow is ushering in some of the coldest air we’ve seen so far this season.  In fact, Monday morning temperatures will drop into the upper 20s and lower 30s inland, creating a hard freeze that could kill crops and sensitive vegetation. We’ll see temps in the mid and upper 30s closer to the coast, which could still harm sensitive plants. That’s why Freeze Warnings and Frost Advisories are posted for parts of the viewing area through Monday morning.  By afternoon, highs will only climb into the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies. On Tuesday, morning temperatures will drop into the 30s again, but by afternoon, we’ll be in the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies. On Wednesday and Thursday, highs will be climb back into the 70s.  Enjoy your week.

Tonight: Mostly Clear. Cold. Overnight low temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s inland; mid and upper 30s closer to the coast. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.
