Turkey day in the Bay Area is slated to start out cold.
The National Weather Service on Tuesday issued a frost advisory for interior East Bay valleys, San Benito County and the Southern Salinas Valley. Temperatures in those areas are expected to hover in the low- to mid-30s by daybreak Wednesday and Thursday.
The advisory runs from 3 a.m. to 9 a.m. Wednesday.
The rest of the region won’t be much warmer. Morning temperatures are expected to range in the high 30s to low 40s in North Bay valleys along the immediate Bay shoreline and in the mid- to high-30s in interior North Bay valleys, the weather service said.
Brief offshore winds will “trickle” into some of the North Bay mountains Tuesday night and Wednesday, the weather service said. That will potentially keep some of the foothills warmer and just above frost advisory criteria. But cold mornings are still expected in interior North Bay valleys, namely in northern Sonoma and Napa counties.
The cold conditions could pose a threat to homeless encampments, as well as sensitive plants and crops.
Things will eventually warm up. It will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid-60s to low 70s on Thanksgiving Day, the weather service said. Elsewhere, New York City will be mostly sunny with highs in the mid 50s. There is a chance of rain in Chicago, where highs around 40 are expected, and Phoenix will be sunny with highs in the 70s.
