The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning and frost advisory for the inland areas of the Bay Area, including in the valley, hills and coastal areas around San Francisco and Monterey for late Monday night and Tuesday morning.
The alert, which was issued about 4 a.m. by the weather service’s San Francisco Bay Area station, warns that temperatures will range from the mid-20s to the low 30s until midmorning Tuesday. Subfreezing temperatures can damage or kill plants that are sensitive to cold weather, according to the alert, which warned people to make sure animals have warm shelter and to ensure that elderly citizens are OK.
Wind speeds are expected to drop by late Monday night, leading to widespread temperature drops, according to the weather service alert. The alert also stated that frost is likely to form in coastal areas as temperatures drop to near freezing.
