    LONDON - JANUARY 04: A man walks to work in freezing conditions on January 4, 2010 in London, England. Much of the UK is in the grip of freezing weather with snow and ice disrupting transport across the country as people return to work after the Christmas break. The MET office confirmed that the Christmas period has been the coldest for 25 years with temperatures as low as -17C being recorded in Scotland. (Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images)

    A frost advisory was in effect for most of the county as temperatures dipped again Tuesday to an uncomfortable level for most shorts-wearing, summer-loving San Diegans.

    On Monday, the cold prompted even the most die-hard winter shorts wearers – if you aren’t one, chances are you know one – to pull on the long pants and shelve the flip flops for socks and boots.

    The cold snap brought some new records to the region. Oceanside Harbor recorded its lowest temperature since 1968 with a 37. In Alpine, temps dropped to 30 beating the last record of 33 set in 2004. While in Ramona, folks there saw temps drop to 24 Monday breaking the old record of 28 set in 1994.

    The county should be mostly sunny Tuesday with highs in the 60s. Another cold night Tuesday night but them we should start to see things warm up later in the week, according to forecaster Whitney Southwick.
