Frost Advisory Issued for Altadena for Monday Night, Tuesday Morning

The National Weather Service has issued another frost advisory for Altadena and nearby areas, in effect from midnight Monday night to 9 a.m. Tuesday. NWS predicts there will likely be “at least two hours of temperatures at or just slightly above freezing” tonight.

“Cold air behind a weak weather system will bring another round of cold overnight temperatures and areas of gusty winds,” the NWS says in its frost advisory for tonight.

NWS advises residents that measures should be taken to protect sensitive outdoor plants and that pets should be brought indoors.

Tuesday will be sunny with a high near 59 and calm winds from the north and northeast, and Tuesday night will be mostly clear with lows at 43.

Wednesday will be sunny and the temperature gets warmer, high around 64 with a north to northeast wind around five miles per hour becoming calm in the afternoon. Lows will be near 45 degrees.

Thursday promises to be warmer sunny day, with a high near 68 and low around 45. The Pasadena Fire Department is not taking any chances and advises prospectiver campers on the Rose Parade route to be ready for the cold.

“It’s still cold for us in Southern California,” Lisa Derderian, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman, says in a report by Pasadena Star-News.

Derderian said campers should be prepared with plenty of layers and warm sleeping bags. She reminds parade-goers that no tents are allowed and that they could bring only small, professionally manufactured barbecues elevated at least one foot off the ground, according to the report.

New Year’s Day will definitely be sunny, a great day for the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl game. Highs are expected at 69 degrees, with lows at 43 on a mostly clear Friday night.
