Affected area: The northern Wasatch front, the great Salt Lake desert, the Cache Valley, the Western Uinta Basin, the Sanpete and Seveier Valleys and west central Utah, including the cities of Logan, Smithfield, Brigham City, Ogden, Bountiful, Wendover, Snowville, Duchesne, Roosevelt, Mani, Richfield, Delta, Fillmore, Beaver, Cedar City and Milford.

Temperatures: Falling to the mid-to-upper 20s late tonight into Thursday morning. Urban areas along the Wasatch front are also likely to experience freezing temperatures but only reaching the low 30s while the outlying areas will reach the upper 20s.

Impacts: Temperatures falling into the 20s can kill sensitive vegetation exposed to the cold. Cover or bring sensitive vegetation indoors. Temperatures may be cold enough to also impact orchards that are in advanced stages of development.

Precautionary/preparedness actions: A hard freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. These conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
