Before SoCal residents can enjoy the sunny Christmas forecasted earlier this week, possibly record low temperatures Friday night may have people grabbing an extra blanket.
“We could be setting records as far out as the coastal sections of Southern California overnight,” said NBC4 forecaster Carl Bell. “Bundle up. It’s going to be a chilly night.”
A freeze warning is in effect from midnight to 9 a.m. Saturday in Riverside County and a frost advisory is in effect in San Diego County, according to the National Weather Service.
Freezing cold temperatures and frosty conditions are expected tonight across the Inland valleys.
Christmas Eve, people can expect temperatures to climb well above normal for this time of year, reaching the mid-70s.
Inland valley locations like Woodland Hills and Northridge may see temperatures of 75 degrees, while Santa Barbara and along the coasts can expect temperatures in the upper 60s.
On Christmas day, parts of the region are forecasted to have 80-degree weather.
