SAN DIEGO -- More frosty weather is on tap for Tuesday night as a frost advisory went into effect for the inland valleys and deserts ahead of freezing temperatures expected across the county overnight, according to the National Weather Service.
The frost advisory will be in effect from midnight until 8 a.m. Wednesday, according to the NWS.
Temperatures were forecast to drop to 28 to 35 degrees overnight in the deserts and valleys and as low as 24 degrees in the local mountains -- lows that can seriously harm or kill pets or sensitive plants left outside.
Residents who live in regions where the frost advisory is in effect were reminded to bring pets and plants indoors to ensure no severe damage is sustained overnight, according to the NWS.
Along the coast temperatures could dip to 32 to 42 degrees accompanied by light winds.
Drier, more seasonal conditions are expected Wednesday.
"High pressure will build into the Great Basin through Saturday forcing dry, gusty offshore flow through and below the passes and canyons and warmer days west of the mountains," according to the weather service.
"Overall, the weather will be dry and seasonal over the holiday weekend."
Temperatures a few degrees higher are in the forecast Wednesday for areas other than the deserts.
