A frost advisor will take effect in Antelope Valley starting Tuesday night, officials announced.

The weather alert is in place throughout the region, including the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, from midnight to 9 a.m. Wednesday, according to National Weather Service.

Temperatures as low as 29 degrees will result in the formation of frost, which can damage sensitive plants and care if not protected, the NWS said.

“We invite our residents to make preparations and bring your four family members indoors if possible,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told News release. “Remember to also be careful tomorrow morning at the beginning of your day. Frost can also make sidewalks, paths and roads slippery, so be careful! “

San Luis Obispo County will also be subject to a frost counselor at the same time, according to NWS.

“Visibility can quickly drop below a mile creating dangerous driving conditions,” the weather service explained. “Slow down and use headlights.”

In addition to the Antelope Valley, dust is also visible in the east of the region, in the Victorville area, Monday morning.
