I should have covered my exposed pipes, they burst sometime overnight and the spray created a very icy mess. Our kids sure loved it though,” he wrote.


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.
