Pat Shingleton: "A Special Date-For Me and Katie"
Some were projecting overnight lows in the teens and the last time that occurred was January 9th and 10th, 2010. Back then we dipped to 18 and 19 degrees. Isolated instances of ice were reported on the LSU lakes. Last night was our ninth episode of 20 degree weather but this event can't compare to December, 1989. Super record lows in single digits had pipes popping and a tragic explosion at EXXON.I also remember January 7, 1988 and two events. At 7:00 AM that morning a freeze warning was posted and Katie Kean Shingleton was born. Later that evening flakes and flurries were reported and our Interstate system was closed. She was transported home under sunny skies with a dusting of snow. Happy Birthday Katie with beautiful forecasts for you.
