LOS ANGELES — California weather is under the influence of a cold air mass that may bring freezes and frosts even as southern areas continue to see damaging winds.

The National Weather Service says a freeze watch will be in effect Friday night through Saturday morning in the central and southern San Joaquin Valley due to four to six hours of temperatures between 28 degrees and 32 degrees.

A frost advisory will be in effect for the Sacramento Valley and northern San Joaquin Valley, the Delta and the Mendocino coast.

A hard freeze warning is in effect for interior San Luis Obispo County valleys.

Meanwhile, high pressure in the Great Basin will produce gusty north and northeast winds in Southern California, where days of strong gusts have toppled trees and triggered power outages.
