Special Statement
Statement as of 4:47 AM PST on December 25, 2014

...The coldest temperatures so far this season expected tonight and Friday night...

The fast-moving cold front that swept through the district Wednesday evening ushered in a much cooler and drier airmass. With winds now subsiding...the net result will be our coldest temperatures so far this season.

Temperatures are expected to drop to around freezing in the inland valleys by late Thursday night with some areas of frost developing early Friday morning. Even chillier temperatures are then forecast to occur late Friday night and early Saturday morning when temperatures in the coldest valley locations will dip into the upper 20s. Overnight lows elsewhere will range from the 30s to lower 40s. Widespread frost is likely across inland areas late Friday night and early Saturday morning.

Those living in valleys prone to cold conditions on clear calm winter nights should take action to protect frost-sensitive plants.
