Cold weather lingers over Riverside County

The National Weather Service issued this forecast of low temperatures for Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018.
RIVERSIDE — The remnants of a cold low-pressure storm system was moving over Riverside County this morning, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a freeze warning for areas west of the mountains and a frost advisory in the Coachella Valley and the San Gorgonio Pass.
Both the freeze warning and frost advisory went into effect late Tuesday night and expired at 8 a.m. today, the NWS said. Meteorologists warned that extended exposure to the cold can cause hypothermia.
Temperatures early this morning were in the mid 20s to mid 30s for much of the county, though increasing cloud cover was helping to keep temperatures from plummeting even lower. More cloud cover was expected to build throughout today, which will result in slightly warmer weather late tonight into Thursday morning.
The freeze warning, which signifies sub-freezing temperatures that will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation, covered the Inland Empire and Riverside metropolitan area, including Riverside, Corona and Moreno Valley.
The frost advisory covered the Coachella Valley and the San Gorgonio Pass, including both Banning and Desert Hot Springs, the NWS said. The frost advisory signifies widespread frost is expected and sensitive outdoor plants may be killed if left uncovered.
Meteorologists predicted today’s daytime weather would be slightly warmer than earlier this week. High temperatures today will be 55 to 61 in the Riverside metropolitan area, 40 to 47 in the mountains, 58 to 63 in the San Gorgonio Pass and 63 in the Coachella Valley.
A very slight chance of scattered showers was forecast today for the mountains and west of the mountains.
