Statewide freeze coming tonight

by Minden Press-Herald

State officials are warning people across Louisiana to get ready for freezing temperatures, with up to an inch (2.5 centimeters) of snow possible in some areas.

Light snow was reported in parts of Louisiana for about an hour early Tuesday.

The National Weather Service in Shreveport, warned of below freezing temperatures Tuesday night.

“Colder temperatures are expected tonight despite the thickening high clouds that will increase from the west. Look for temperatures to fall into the mid 20s to near 30 degrees across the Ark-La-Tex.”

Officials say light icing was also possible on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses that could cause hazardous driving conditions.

It was 28 degrees in Minden early Tuesday morning.

Temperatures are not expected to climb very high throughout the day.

“Cold temperatures will continue today despite the abundant sunshine in place, with temperatures only climbing into the middle to upper 40s across the Ark-La-Tex,” the National Weather Service said.
