Another hard freeze warning has been issued for the valley for early Monday morning, the National Weather Service announced.
Like Sunday, the warning is in effect from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Monday for the Sacramento and the northern San Joaquin valleys, along with the Delta.
Numbers from Sunday morning show that no records were broken, but we did come close – with Sacramento getting down to 24 degrees.
Temperatures Monday morning could range from the upper teens to upper 20’s.
A hard freeze warning is issued when extreme temperatures are expected to persist for an extended period of time. Temperatures in some areas could stay below 28 degrees for up to 6 hours, the NWS notes.
Officials suggest that pets that can’t handle the cold be let inside. Cold-sensitive plants should be covered, along with exposed water pipes.
