PALMDALE – The combination of a cool air mass and light winds across the Antelope Valley will result in freezing temperatures early Thursday morning, according to an advisory issued by the National Weather Service (NWS).
A freeze warning will take effect at 3 a.m. Thursday, April 9, and will remain in effect until 9 a.m. across the Antelope Valley, including the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster, the advisory states.
A freeze warning means temperatures between 29 degrees and 32 degrees for two or more consecutive hours are imminent.
Temperatures early Thursday are expected to fall to the low 30s for a few hours across much of the valley floor, according to the National Weather Service.
Protective measures should be taken to save crops and sensitive vegetation; and vulnerable animals and pets should be kept indoors, the National Weather Service advises.
