NWS Bulletin: Freeze Warning Issued for Tonight as Temperatures Drop

Weather experts at the National Weather Service office in Reno are warning folks in our area to expect temperatures to drop below freezing between 11:00 tonight and 8:00a.m. tomorrow.

Sub-freezing temperatures, as low as twenty-two degrees in some places, are expected across northeastern California and northern Nevada.

Frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.

It’s Going to Get Colder
Even colder temperatures are expected Sunday night into Monday morning with a hard freeze in all areas. Now is a good time to winterize irrigation systems and prepare for routine freezing temperatures.

Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes they should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
