Freezing Rain Advisory
The National Weather Service has issued a FREEZING RAIN ADVISORY from 9pm Monday to 9am Tuesday for areas Northwest of Baton Rouge. This includes the Parishes of East Feliciana, Pointe Coupee, and West Feliciana in Louisiana and the Counties of Amite, Pike and Wilkinson in Mississippi.
-Ice accumulations...up to a tenth of an inch
-Bridges and overpasses prone to icing
A freezing rain advisory means that periods of freezing rain or drizzle will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads, slow down, and use caution while driving.
A few rain showers will linger in the region as temperatures continue to cool. All indications are that the atmosphere will remain too warm for any kind of snow or ice to reach the ground. However, as cooler air continues to move in at the surface, any light rain falling could freeze on contact (freezing rain) where thermometers dip to 32° and below. As of now, this only appears possible for locations north and west of the Capital City as overnight lows in Baton Rouge are expected to hover just above freezing. A slight nudge south in cold air could mean all the difference for Baton Rouge though, so stay connected with this changing forecast!
