LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Antelope Valley residents were all bundled up as temperatures reached the low teens on Saturday night.
Palmdale resident Edwin Mendez was loading up on firewood when KCAL9’s Jennifer Kastner caught up to him.
“I came here because my house is really cold. Temperatures are dropping, so I just wanted to stay warm,” Mendez said.
Overnight lows in Antelope Valley are expected to get into the teens, which could even bring some frost.
Wind speeds were even recorded as high as 50 mph.
Meanwhile, strong winds have been ripping through the trees, and blowing down branches.
On the roadways, blustery conditions have left some drivers feeling uneasy.
“I’m always afraid of the big trucks, I try not to get too close to them,” Palmdale resident Benny Ortiz said.
Some residents are embracing the cold, saying it’s only fitting around the holidays.
“It’s nice because it actually feels like the holiday, and we don’t normally get this cold,” Galina Perez said.
