We are locked into a weather pattern with cold air coming from Alaska. It’s much colder in California than it usually is at this time of the year.
A freeze warning was in effect until 9 a.m. that covered the bay area, the delta region, and the Central Valley all the way up past Chico.
Temperatures have been in the 20s for hours and will continue to be so until 9 a.m. In many locations that aren’t as breezy as they were yesterday, we’re running about 10 degrees colder than this time yesterday.
Wind is coming in from the northeast, which is rare. The coldest weather is now moving east towards the Rockies and the plains states. Things will moderate through the rest of the week.
We’ll have another sunny afternoon today with temperatures in the mid 50s. Look for temperatures to rise by a few degrees each day this week. It’ll still be chilly in the morning for the rest of the week, with temperatures in the 30s.
