It’s been uncharacteristically cold in San Diego the past couple of nights, and the frigid, freezing temperatures are expected to last a little longer.
According to the National Weather Service, a frost advisory remains in effect for San Diego County through 8 a.m. Sunday.
The NWS says Saturday will bring coldest night of all, with many local areas experiencing frost and freezing temperatures. A hard freeze is likely in some areas as well.
Here’s what the temps will look like:
In the coldest coastal areas, the NWS says low temperatures will range from 26 to 32 degrees. Elsewhere, temps are expected to be between 32 and 38 degrees. Downtown San Diego will see temperatures in the mid to upper-30s.
According to NBC 7 meteorologist Jodi Kodesh, low temperatures will hit a near-freezing 35 degrees in the coast, a freezing 24 degrees inland, 19 degrees in the mountains and 28 in the desert Saturday night.
In this frosty cold snap, sensitive plants and crops may be damaged or killed if left unprotected, so locals should keep that in mind and find ways to adequately cover their plants.
The NWS says cold nights and mornings will persist Sunday through Tuesday, with some areas of frost. As of right now, the weather is expected to warm up by Wednesday.
