Expect overnight temps to dip into the 20s.

The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for much of Southern California, including the Inland Empire.

The warning is in effect midnight through 8 a.m. Saturday.

A freeze watch will be in effect from late Saturday night through Sunday morning, according to the NWS.

Temperatures are expected to dip to a chilly 23 to 28 degrees after midnight, the agency reported.

“Sensitive plants and crops may be damaged or killed,” the NWS warned.

A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely; a freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible, the NWS reported.

So if the cops order the crooks to 'freeze'....will they?
Alek J Hidell January 11, 2013 at 11:25 PM
Now the next time we want to bitch and moan how hot it is in August/September? Ask yourself would you want to live in a place where it got any colder than this? Seriously folks, we have the best weather of the year right now....

Must be global warming

Well said Alec...at least we all know this cold weather wont last long for us and look we're nearing mid January already and we're just now feeling the cold? maybe we'll hit a couple more times of this cold next month, then month of march will roll in and it's warm again...we're lucky we live in this part of the world...

I like the cold. At least you can get warm. When it's hot it's hard to get cooler. If your outside in the heat you are hot matter what. When your outside and it gets cold you can put on a sweater.
Michael January 12, 2013 at 01:26 AM
It was colder here than New York in New Year's Eve. How often does that happen?
Sean Groves January 12, 2013 at 01:47 AM
Um, I can put on a hell of alot more clothes than I can take off. I'll take the cold ANY DAY!!!

Steve. If Al Gore and others like him get control they will turn the US into a communist country and controlled by the purse strings of china. It is close to that now. With Obama trying to do away with the 22nd and the 2nd amendments.

Completely rational points, rme. Completely. Rational. Points.

LBV keep your head in the sand, its easier.
LBV Collins January 12, 2013 at 06:32 AM
Hmmm... Okay, June... I'll bite. Care to expand upon your comment?
kristin c January 12, 2013 at 06:40 AM
She means that rather than see what obama is doing to this country, you with countless others, like an ostrich, bury your heads in the sand figuratively speaking. If you ignore or deny the problem it will go away. In this case ignorance is not bliss.

FREEZING! My car won't START running in the morning...... and my nose won't STOP running at night! }~)

Thank you CC for getting politics out of the reason its fricking in the low 20's in Temecula for Godsake!! Its fricking freezing, and I will take heat any day over anything below 65! If there is more then 5 days in the Winter that I cannot wear shorts and flip flops something is seriously wrong :/ and I have Winter Depression! Even my dogs hate going out on the cold cement in the backyard, poor babies. I miss the pool!! And I refuse to sleep in pajama's ! With the long legs, and long sleeves, and socks, and and when will it get warm again?
Sue Aguirre January 12, 2013 at 05:15 PM
Toni, how are the homeless coping? Can you report/inform us about their fates?
Jenny Nason January 12, 2013 at 05:40 PM
I thought it was winter, and that's why it's cold. Silly me....
LBV Collins January 12, 2013 at 06:18 PM
Hi Kristin. Yes, I know that's what she's implying, but I'm looking for specifics, not generalities. (I expected the useless, annoying generalities during the election... from both sides... but now that the election is over, how about providing some real concrete evidence?)
Brenda January 12, 2013 at 06:30 PM
You are right Jenny, it is Winter, and that's why it's cold. I have been in So Cal all my life and its a bit tough to take this really cold weather. I think I only remember 1 or 2 days its been this cold in the past. There could have been more and I just don't remember, but thits is still too cold for too long :/ for these old bones.
julian January 12, 2013 at 07:30 PM
The east coast is unseasonably warm at the moment. I'm hoping my avocado trees don't die tonight. Lake Elsinore's extreme weather seems to be getting more extreme.

Hopefully there'll be some Christian charity about, and maybe the churches and the members of the congregation will open their doors to those who need shelter, food and warmth.
Michael January 13, 2013 at 01:20 AM
Your right Julian. How is it New York, where it snows every year, is warmer than Temecula, where it snows like what is it every 7 years or something? But, be happy. I'm a Mormon high schooler who has to go to seminary every morning. Depending on your job, most of you get to sleep in until 6:30 to 7. It's freezing every morning.
