SALT LAKE CITY --The National Weather Service has issued a hard-freeze warning for areas in northern Utah Tuesday morning.

The warning goes into effect from 2 to 9 a.m. Areas affected will be northern Utah valleys, the Great Salt Lake Desert and the San Rafael Swell.

Temperatures are expected to dip down to mid to upper 20s in advisory area and 30-34 degrees for city centers, according to the national weather service.
