Assignment: Predict the 24 hr minimum temperature (deg F) for Alturus, CA (KAAT)

It's not easy to have a low temperature of 32 F and a high temperature of 90, but that's what the forecasts for Thursday show for Alturus, California (motto: "Where the West Still Lives"). 32 F is the average low, but 90 is about 15 deg above average. Let's forecast Tmin for Alturus and see if it's really possible to get freezing temperatures on a day that hits 90.

Question: With such a warm air mass in place, how is it possible to get down to freezing at night?
