...FREEZE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 9 AM PDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Freeze Warning,
which is in effect from 1 AM to 9 AM PDT Saturday. The Freeze
Watch is no longer in effect.

* Areas Impacted: Carson Valley, Carson City, suburbs of Reno-
  Sparks, around Fallon, Lovelock and agricultural areas in
  Pershing County, Lyon County, Mineral County, Sierra Valley,
  Susanville and lower elevations of Lassen County.

* Temperatures: Low temperatures Saturday morning are projected
  to be in the 20s to near 30 for these areas. This coupled
  with light winds and clear skies will result in frost and
  freeze impacts.

* Impacts: This is potentially the first widespread frost and
  freeze for many areas this fall. Sensitive vegetation will
  likely be damaged if not protected. Some above ground
  irrigation systems could also suffer damage if not drained
  or protected.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Freeze Watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible.
These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
A Freeze Warning will be issued once confidence increases to high
that widespread sub-freezing temperatures will occur.

&

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Freeze Warning means there is high confidence in an unusually
cold air mass bringing sub-freezing temperatures to the region.
Preparedness activities should be considered to mitigate
potential impacts due to the cold.
