SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Thanksgiving celebrations in California are getting off to a frigid start.

The National Weather Service has issued freeze warnings for wide swaths of Northern and Southern California Thursday and Friday as a cold air mass moves through the region.

Meteorologists say temperatures in Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties were expected to linger around 32 degrees Thursday morning and again in the evening and early Friday.

Further north, the National Weather Service in San Francisco issued a freeze warning for the North Bay valleys beginning Thursday at 11 p.m. until Friday morning and again in the evening.

Cold weather shelters are being opened ahead of schedule for the homeless in Santa Clara and other countries.

The weather service says crops and sensitive plants should be protected and pets kept inside.
