Freeze Warning issued for the Victor Valley area

VICTOR VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning affecting the Victor Valley through Tuesday night. 

A Freeze Warning is issued when there is potential for significant, widespread freezing temperatures. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.

According to the NWS, a Freeze Watch and a Freeze Advisory also continue to remain in effect.

Officials said an offshore flow will develop this evening and produce strong northeast winds across much of the region. Winds are expected to weaken Tuesday night, but continue breezy Wednesday.

“As the winds decrease, clear skies and light winds will result in widespread frost and freezing conditions the next couple of nights,” officials said.

Local temperatures in Victorville are predicted to dip to 24 degrees Monday night and 23 degrees on New Years night. Widespread frost is predicted after 10:00 pm, with wind gusts as high as 20-25 mph.

Don’t forget to bring your pets indoors during the extreme cold weather. Remember, if its too vold for you, its too cold for them.

Tip for Freezing pipes:

Letting a faucet drip during extreme cold weather can prevent a pipe from bursting. It’s not that a small flow of water prevents freezing; this helps, but water can freeze even with a slow flow. … If there is no excessive water pressure, there is no burst pipe, even if the water inside the pipe freezes.
