Valley-ites (and anyone else whose toes are tingling with the chill), get ready to crank up the thermostat, bundle up in the blankets, and pour yourselves a hot toddy. According to the Pasadena Star-News, the "National Weather Service has issued a frost advisory for Los Angeles valleys." That means in the wee hours you'd best "take measures to protect plants and pets from freezing temperatures."

Despite our international reputation as the land of perpetual sunshine and balmy breezes, tonight we're due for "hard freeze conditions" in the San Fernando Valley, "where temperatures are expected to drop below freezing for at least two hours overnight." Be sure to bring in your pets, and protect your plant life. (Not sure how to protect your plants? LAist can help!) Keep warm, Angelenos!
