An area of high pressure will sit over us today and that will make for a beautiful sunny day. Unfortunately, it will stay very cold all afternoon. The Arctic Air will still be over us today and that will not allow us to warm up much. We will only have high temperatures in the upper 30s to around 40 in the Baton Rouge area. If you have to be outside for an extended period of time today be sure to dress in layers to stay extra warm!

We will have one more night of the bitter cold with clear skies. Low temperatures will be in the lower 20s. Another hard freeze is expected and the NWS has issued another Hard Freeze Warning from 6 PM tonight until 9 AM Wednesday. This hard freeze could last 12 to 15 hours with temperatures below 26°.

Always remember the "P's": Be sure to wrap any exposed pipes outside of your home! This cold blast may be cold enough to burst some pipes - especially in areas that may not get above freezing on Monday. PLEASE have a warm place for any outdoor pets. Lastly, check on those people that may not have any heat.
