SACRAMENTO–

You probably woke up to frost Sunday morning, and if you’re like many of us at FOX40, the proof was on the windshield.

The National Weather Service has released a hard freeze warning in effect from 3 a.m.-9 a.m. Monday morning, throughout the Sacramento Valley. Temperatures will range from the upper teens to mid-twenties, with the coldest readings expected along the east side of the valley.

At the downtown farmers market, FOX40 spotted several farmers throwing their crops out Sunday. “Once lettuce freezes, we can’t sell it” one farmer from Auburn told us.

Others were out and about in Sunday’s 30 temperatures wearing shorts — walking around, playing soccer and enjoying the day.

NWS stresses the impact of freezing temperatures: water pipes can burst and vegetation can freeze. The warning also stresses that pets and livestock can feel the cold as well.
