...FREEZING TEMPERATURES TONIGHT IN THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE
VALLEY...

Colder air moving in behind a cold front, combined with clear
skies and light winds, will lead to a freeze in the valley between
Bernalillo, Albuquerque and Los Lunas. Lows tonight will range
from 28 to 32 degrees in the valley. This area has already
experienced at least one freeze this season. Elsewhere across the
Albuquerque Metro, overnight lows will range from 33 to 40
degrees.

Agricultural interests can expect freezing temperatures which may
damage sensitive vegetation or crops immediately along the Rio
Grande River. Irrigation pipes and water supply lines to evaporative
coolers may freeze and become damaged.
