According to Kevin Martin, meteorologist of the SCWA, “This looks like the coldest pattern since 1990 for some areas. Overnight lows may hit the 30s along the coast, with 20s way inland.”

This does come with some moisture mixed in,snow levels will be below 2,000 feet in some parts with some areas seeing snow levels further down, according to SCWA. “It does depend on the moisture with this trough on how far the snow-levels will go down, with the most likely lowest snow-level timing being overnight Wednesday into Thursday with the drier air on Thursday night into the weekend for the coldest nights.” Martin said on his facebook page.

Be advised that this may be a dangerous event for the unaware so stay tuned to the website or Facebook page for details.
