VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Temperatures in the Victor Valley will dip below freezing temperatures Monday night, officials said.
According to the National Weather Service, the cities of Victorville, Hesperia, and Apple Valley are under a ‘hard freeze warning’ beginning at 10:00 pm tonight and is expected to last till 10:00 am Wednesday, February 5, 2020.
Temperatures in the Victor Valley will drop to 16 degrees for Tuesday night, sub-freezing temperatures as low as 18 degrees possible.
Freeze conditions could kill crops, other sensitive vegetation, and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing, officials said.
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, according to the NWS.
Like people, cats and dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia and should be kept inside. Longer-haired and thick-coated dog breeds, such as huskies and other dogs bred for colder climates, are more tolerant of cold weather; but no pet should be left outside for long periods in below-freezing weather.
