SALT LAKE CITY — A hard-freeze warning has been issued for early Tuesday morning in several areas of the state, according to the National Weather Service website.

All valleys and basins outside of extreme southern Utah and Dixie will be affected.

The warning remains in effect from 3 to 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Temperatures are anticipated to get as low as 28 degrees. The Urban areas in the Wasatch Front, east of Interstate 15, will remain in the low to mid 30s – some frost is expected, according to the weather service.

The weather service advises that people take precautions to prevent damage to crops and early gardens and bring any potted plants inside.

A hard-freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely. The weather service says these conditions will kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.
