* Frigid temperatures have settled into the region with highs
  remaining below freezing in many locations today and possibly
  Tuesday. Overnight lows last night were already some of the
  coldest the region has seen in 5-10 years. Lows tonight will be
  as cold if not colder, especially for areas near and south of
  I-80. Be sure to protect vulnerable populations, pets, and
  livestock from these continued very cold temperatures. It`s
  also a good idea to make sure that your pipes are protected from
  the cold.

* Increasing northeast to east winds will drive down wind chill
  values, with temperatures downright dangerous in exposed areas
  of the high Sierra. Wind chills may reach -20 to -35 degrees
  tonight in the High Sierra. Exposed skin could rapidly see
  frostbite in these conditions. It may be a good idea to stay
  indoors, or make sure to have proper safety gear if you are
  recreating in the back country.

* A gradual warming trend will be on tap from midweek onward.
