ST. GEORGE – A hard freeze warning is in effect this evening to 9 a.m. MST Monday below 3500 feet.

According to the National Weather Service, low temperatures across much of the mojave desert region are expected to dip into the teens and lower 20s tonight through Monday morning as a very cold and dry air mass settles in.

* Expected temperatures: Low temperatures between 15 and 22 degrees are expected each night.

* Greatest impact areas: The Las Vegas valley, Mesquite, areas of California and Arizona, in the mojave desert region. (St. George is included in the affected areas although not listed in the greatest impact areas.)

* Winds: North winds of 10 to 20 mph will be most prevalent down the Colorado River Valley. Winds are expected to be light across the rest of the region which will allow nighttime temperatures to drop quickly.

Precautionary/preparedness actions

A hard freeze warning means dangerously cold temperatures are imminent. Protect outdoor plumbing by covering exposed pipes and pool equipment and allowing pool filtration systems to run during the night and early morning. Bring pets and plants indoors.
