Sub-freezing temperatures are likely tonight and Saturday morning in inland areas of the Bay Area, according to a National Weather Service meteorologist and a freeze warning issued by the NWS.

The warning goes into effect at 11 p.m. tonight and ends at 9 a.m. Saturday for areas not adjacent to the bay or ocean, weather service officials, including meteorologist Duane Dykema said.

Temperatures will be anywhere from 26 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit in most inland areas, according to weather service officials.

The cold poses a threat to the health of people outside and will kill crops and other plants, weather service officials said.

Worst case scenario, what should one do and NOT DO if their pipes were to freeze up? I’ve covered mine, but I was curious if they did freeze, do I wait til the afternoon, take a blow torch to the faucet? Just curious. Thanks.

ConcordMike when I lived where this was an issue there were two tricks. Easy one is crack the faucet a little. Moving water takes longer to freeze. Second is using heat tape/cable for vulnerable piping.

Now that I’ve actually read and understood your question, the only time I had to do that I used my wife’s hair dryer. Mush better to prevent than treat.

Y’all are colder than we are. Methinks it’s going to be a strange weather year.

What I do to keep my pipes from freezing is, I go outside before bedtime and turn off the water, come back in and turn on the faucets to drain them.
I’m not sure if it stays at 32 degrees long enough in the morning for the pipes to freeze, but I’d rather be safe than sorry.

It didn’t seem as cold as expected – covered some plants, but frost cloth blew off one and if there’s a “breeze, no freeze”. I will stock up on more frost cloths this weekend, as when you really need them the stores are out of stock. Sheets just don’t work the same…

Some of the lemons on my tree split open. Usually these temps come in January (as happened last January) and by then the lemons have thick skins and can take the cold. The tree is somewhat boxed in between two houses which helps protect it. But I did cover it Thursday night and it seemed to prevent any further splitting.
