Don’t be surprised if you see a thin layer of ice on your windshield. Strong, cold winds are expected throughout the week and a freeze warning was issued for the Santa Clarita Valley beginning at 1 a.m. Tuesday.  

According to National Weather Service officials, temperatures within the valley are projected to drop to a low of 32 degrees Fahrenheit in several areas. 

“We have a freeze warning that is in effect,” said Ariel Cohen, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service in Oxnard. “We’ll also see temperatures at or below freezing.”  

The freeze warning was to be in effect beginning 1 a.m. Tuesday and lasting until 10 a.m. Wednesday, but residents may begin to see frost as early as 10 p.m.  

Chilly, dry winds as strong as 35 mph and as low as 10 mph are also expected throughout the week.  

“Those strong winds will be ramping up, especially affecting the higher elevations in the foothills as we head into later on Tuesday, into Wednesday, and Thursday,” Cohen said. 

A wind advisory has not been announced but “there’s a good chance that we’ll be having strong enough winds to make headlines,” said Cohen on Monday.  

Forecasts are expected to return to normal beginning Thursday with temperatures forecast at 64 degrees Fahrenheit and clear sunny skies.
