...MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES SUNDAY AND MONDAY...

Two cold fronts will move through the Sierra and western Nevada,
one tonight and another Sunday. Colder temperatures behind the
first front will bring widespread freezing temperatures Friday
morning, see the Freeze Watch for details.

On Sunday, a stronger cold front is likely to move through with
much colder temperatures. There is an increasing chance that highs
Sunday into Monday may only be in the 30s and 40s. Overnight lows
Monday and Tuesday mornings may only be in the teens in western
Nevada with single digits in the Sierra valleys. A few below zero
readings are not out of the question either. In addition, gusty
winds are behind the front Sunday into Monday morning will make
it feel even colder.

Sensitive plants should be moved indoors and any late season
vegetables harvested by Thursday afternoon. With the much colder
temperatures Sunday into early next week, be sure to drain all
outdoor irrigation systems.
