SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a hard freeze warning for the Sacramento Valley, Delta and northern San Joaquin Valley overnight Sunday, with temperatures dropping into the teens in some areas.
The hard freeze warning is in effect from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday. Minimum temperatures will range from the upper teens in the coldest areas of the valley to upper 20s in large urban areas. Durations below 28 degrees of three to six hours are likely, the NWS said.
The hard freeze ranges from Redding in the north to Modesto in the south portion of the Central Valley.
Long durations below freezing will kill unprotected, freeze-sensitive plants and fruits and exposed water pipes could burst.
Precautions should also be taken for pets and livestock.
The low is expected to drop to 28 overnight in Sacramento, with a high of 52 under sunny skies Sunday afternoon. Overnight lows Saturday dropped to 25 in Marysville and Citrus Heights and 30 in Sacramento.
Temperatures are expected to creep back up above freezing levels early next week.
