SoCal Residents Bundle Up Amid Freezing Temperatures

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Several areas across Southern California, including the Antelope Valley, were dealing with freezing temperatures on Thursday morning.

A frost advisory remains in effect through 9 a.m. Thursday for much of the region, as temperatures in some areas dipped below freezing overnight.

Interior valley areas saw some of the coldest temperatures, the National Weather Service said, with “widespread temperatures” below 28 degrees.

Lancaster recorded a record low of 14 degrees, breaking the previous record of 15 degrees set in 2006. Palmdale also saw sub-freezing temperatures.

At the Lancaster Community Shelter, all 120 beds were full Wednesday night as people packed in to get a shower and a hot meal.

Officials warned that residents should make sure their pets are indoors and their plants are covered.

Temperatures will warm up into the 60s by Thursday afternoon for most coastal and inland areas. Highs will be in the 40s in the mountains and the 50s in the high desert.

Some areas could see frost again on Thursday night. Forecasters said that another series of storms is expected over the weekend.
