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
