ST. GEORGE — The National Weather Service has issued a hard freeze warning for portions of southwest Utah and the Sevier Valley, including the cities of Cedar City, Enterprise, Beaver, Milford, Richfield and Salina.
The hard freeze watch is in effect from late Monday night through 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Sub-freezing temperatures in the upper 20s are possible. Frost and freeze conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing.
Take steps now to protect tender plants from the cold. To prevent freezing and possible bursting of outdoor water pipes, they should be wrapped, drained or allowed to drip slowly. Those that have in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to protect them from freezing.
For the most current conditions, warnings and advisories, go to the National Weather Service-Salt Lake City office website.
