    Bay Area residents will be seeing more frosts on cars as a freeze warning is issued.

    The National Weather Service canceled a freeze warning Sunday
    morning that had been in effect across the Bay Area since midnight.
          
    The warning was expected to expire at 8 a.m., but temperatures at

    that time were still below freezing in the Napa and upper Sonoma regions, National Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin said. The warning was
    extended until 10 a.m.
          
    The coldest places included the areas around Santa Rosa, Windsor,
    Healdsburg, Cloverdale and Calistoga, he said.
          
    A freeze warning means sub-freezing temperatures are imminent or
    highly likely. Such conditions will kill sensitive vegetation.
          
    "It's cold," Benjamin said. "This will probably be the coldest
    morning that we will experience. Tomorrow probably won't be quite as cold."
          
    The Santa Cruz Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is
    reminding pet owners to take precautions to keep their companions warm as
    temperatures dip.
         
     "Our weather is typically so mild that we can easily forget about
    having to protect our pets from extreme temperatures. This puts the animals
    in our area especially at risk," said Lisa Carter, executive director of the
    Santa Cruz SPCA, in a prepared statement.The National Weather Service extended a freeze warning Sunday
