• Thanksgiving Temperatures in San Gabriel Valley Expected to Reach Record Lows


    PASADENA (CNS) – Record temperatures could fall in Pasadena and other areas tonight. The record low for the date in Pasadena is 35 degrees, and forecasters predicted an overnight low of 34 degrees, Bonnie Bartling of the NWS said.

    With cold weather in the forecast over the holiday weekend, Los Angeles County health officials reminded residents today that shelters are available for people trying to escape the chill.
    A list of shelter locations and transportation information is available at www.lahsa.org/year_round_shelter.asp. Residents can also call the county information line at 211.

    “Because children and the elderly are especially vulnerable during such
    cold snaps, care should be taken to ensure they don’t get too cold when they
    are outside,’ county health officer Dr. Jonathan Fielding said. “There are
    places were people can go to stay warm, such as shelters or other public
    facilities.’
    Fielding also said people should not use stoves, barbeques or ovens to
    heat their homes due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
    A freeze warning will be in effect tonight for the Antelope Valley, and
    low temperatures in the 20s and 30s are possible through Sunday, according to
    the National Weather Service.
    A hard freeze in extreme northern Los Angeles County
    produced an overnight low of 24 degrees at Sandberg today — the coldest on
    record — and temperatures early Thanksgiving Day are also expected to be in
    record range.
    The old record in Sandberg, which is in the mountains near the Kern
    County line, was 27 degrees set in 1952, according to the National Weather
    Service.
    The overnight low in downtown Los Angeles is forecast to be 41 degrees,
    five degrees shy of the record of 36 degrees, she said.
    Lows around Orange County are forecast to range from 41-46 degrees.
    Flurries could fall in the Santa Ana Mountains, where forecasters predict a
    slight chance of precipitation.

    In the Antelope Valley, a freeze warning will be in effect from 11
    tonight to 9 a.m. Thursday, according to the NWS.
    A freeze warning means temperatures below 28 degrees for at least two
    hours are likely. These conditions can kill crops and other sensitive
    vegetation. Precautions should be taken to protect outdoor plants and crops,
    Bartling said. Vulnerable animals and pets should be kept sheltered or indoors.
    No freeze warning was expected in Los Angeles, she said.

    “The cold air is very dense, it stays close to the ground, so the
    mountains will serve as a barrier of sorts,’ NWS meteorologist Curt Kaplan
    said. “It will be down in the teens overnight in the Antelope Valley, but not
    that cold on this side of the mountains.’
    A cold and dry air mass beneath strong northerly flow is moving toward
    Southern California behind a departing cold front, Kaplan said.

    “It’s on its way, and we will see its effects tonight,’ Kaplan said.
    Lows in the high desert are predicted to range from 16- 22 degrees.
    Despite the cold overnight temperatures, Thanksgiving Day should be
    sunny and warm in the metro area, with highs in the mid 60s. Winds will be out
    of the northeast at 15-30 mph, with stronger gusts possible below canyons and
    passes.
