Below-Average Temperatures to Linger a Little Longer

Another frosty morning is expected on Sunday as the cold streak continues.

Below-freezing temperatures were felt across much of the Inland Empire early Saturday morning, and more frosty weather is in the weekend forecast.

The National Weather Service says that Saturday night and Sunday morning will bring widespread frost and freezing temperatures west of the mountains within a few miles of the coast, and winds will begin to pick up on Monday. Gusts may reach 35 mph on Monday

The cold snap will also be felt south of Riverside County, prompting San Diego Gas & Electric to remind people of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, particularly from gas heaters that are being turned on for the first time this winter:

• Symptoms of CO poisoning can include nausea, headaches, paralysis and even death.

• Never use a gas oven, portable barbeque or range for space heating.

• Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur as a result of a poorly ventilated heater or a CO leak from another source. Have natural gas furnaces checked at least once a year by a licensed heating contractor.

• Vacuum and clean regularly in and around the furnace, particularly around the burner compartment to prevent a build-up of dust and lint.

• Never store items in, on or around the appliance that can obstruct airflow.

• If you suspect that you or a loved one is suffering from CO poisoning, call 911 immediately.

• Visit sdge.com/safety for more information on staying safe.

Shouldn't we be enlarging our carbon and fossil fuel use to combat this all this global cooling?
LBV Collins January 13, 2013 at 03:49 PM
Well, there are two schools of thought on this subject, Dog. The first is that global warming could prevent a ice age. (Ice ages are cyclical.) The other school of thought is that global warming could actually start an ice age. [1] Neither scenario is good. According to one bleak outlook, if our planet's mean temperature rises by five-to-six degrees, it would wipe out 95% of life on our planet. (This has happened before.) [2] But if global warming starts another ice age, then "...much of the world -- including Europe and North America -- would be covered in a thick sheet of ice."

Decades ago, there was a high level meeting of people with a plan on how to destroy America and was held at Berkely Campus. There were about ten subjects and how to destroy them. One was to hype Global Warming so as to put burdensome restrictions on industry so as to drive them into the ground.This meeting and who was there is on the net somewhere. b
ROBERT E. FISHBACK January 13, 2013 at 07:57 PM
The only fact I have is the report of the meeting and its agenda and the only proof is somewhere on the net.

Shane why do you waste your time debating ingorant rednecks who get their info from rednecks from Louisiana?
Michael January 14, 2013 at 12:02 AM
One voice, it was seriously that cold in Vegas? To think that's 100 degrees hotter their in the summer. I can not live with 14, according to the Internet that's the record cold for Temecula. So glad it's not as cold here.
Adrian January 14, 2013 at 02:23 AM
You're right, dog. Large scale climate change couldn't possibly cause shifting weather patterns that bring unusually cold/hot temperatures to places where they do not historically appear. **eye roll**
Roberto January 14, 2013 at 03:25 AM
Just got a picture on Face Book one of my Nephews swimming pool who lives in Las Vegas. It was frozen over albeit a thin ice sheet it supported the weight of his small dog.

Adrian; The fact that u buy into the whole "climate change" is cause enough for eye rolling. As for me, I'll be turning on the heater, burning logs in the fire place and anything else I can do to hasten ur climate change. Oh, and I also drive an SUV....bwahahahaha.....;)
keepn it real January 14, 2013 at 01:15 PM
Lol !!yes its really cold.. it always make me laugh when I read the post on the patch..!can anyone stay on subject? A d d :-)
ROBERT E. FISHBACK January 14, 2013 at 02:50 PM
Just because I have our local taxidermist on my speed dialer does not make me a redneck.
One Voice January 14, 2013 at 07:04 PM
Yes Michael, it was actually 10 degrees in Jean and the race trucks were having problems with their radiators freezing, I have never seen it that cold in Vegas the high was 41 both days we were there.
One Voice January 14, 2013 at 11:00 PM
This post is about weather, right?
ROBERT E. FISHBACK January 14, 2013 at 11:43 PM
The post WAS about weather. Its not politics per se.but people who dont know much about anything else. Really, the eds. should delete any thing off topic. Someone metnioned how cold it was in Jean...Jean is not too far from Pahrump...I bet the citizens there froze their rumps off and from now on the town should be called PAH.
Frankie January 14, 2013 at 11:47 PM
I always called Pahrump "your rump" so PAH just might work too
ROBERT E. FISHBACK January 14, 2013 at 11:57 PM
I am about to change the subject. Did you notice how a higher authority than local eds moved through and removed a ton of posts..except mine..Take a look.. Someone some where got a belly full of the embiciles who don;t have brains enough to drive a piss ant's motorcycle around a B.B. This ED decided to get the message across that the Patch is quality place for quality people who have something of substance to say..not your private dumping ground. You can still find comfort..go take a dump and get a load off of your mind.
ROBERT E. FISHBACK January 15, 2013 at 12:04 AM
The temps are not the only thing that is way below average...
