FULLERTON (CNS) - A record low minimum temperature was reported in Fullerton, according to the National Weather Service.
It was 39 at Fullerton Airport on Wednesday, tying a record for lowest minimum temperature in 2009.
Colder temperatures are expected to hit the Southland along with gusting winds in some areas Thursday.
A freeze watch is in effect in parts of the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys through Thursday morning. Temperatures are expected to reach as low as 26 degrees.
In the Santa Clarita Valley, temperatures could fall as low as 29 degrees, with a freeze watch in effect through Thursday morning.
Burbank, Northridge, Universal City, Woodland Hills, Castaic, Newhall and Santa Clarita are under freeze warnings.
"Daytime highs will definitely be below seasonal normals through Thursday, but nothing approaching problematic levels," according to the NWS. "However, overnight low Tuesday night and Wednesday night will be very cold, especially in any wind-sheltered areas. So, there may be widespread frost/freeze issues across the valleys and inland coastal plain."
