Looks like the unusually cold, frigid temperatures are here to stay – a least for a little bit longer.

The National Weather Service has issued yet another local freeze watch for San Diego County. This time, the severe weather warning is in effect from 10 p.m. Sunday through 8 a.m. Monday.

The night will bring cold temperatures ranging from the lower 20s to lower 30s. The NWS expects below-freezing temps in the coldest wind-sheltered areas.

The cold weather could damage or kill sensitive plants and crops if left uncovered.

High, gusty winds are also expected to sweep through the county, with a high wind watch in effect Monday evening through Tuesday morning. The coast foothills from the Ramona area southward may experience the strongest gusts, possibly reaching 60 mph.

The winds could make driving difficult, so motorists should be on high alert, looking out for any possible broken tree limbs and downed power lines.

As of right now, temperatures are expected to being to moderate Monday night, but areas of frost might still be possible. The weather should warm up some by Wednesday.
