MONROE - The National Weather Service reports a record low for Jan. 6 in Monroe. Forecasters say daily records could fall or be matched on Tuesday in Monroe, Alexandria and Shreveport as Arctic air spends a second day in Louisiana.

Monday's low of 20 in Monroe was a degree below the record from Jan. 6, 1959. Shreveport could see its coldest Jan. 7 in 128 years, matching a 14-degree mark from Jan. 7, 1886.

The weather service in Lake Charles is no longer predicting Jan. 7 records in Lake Charles and Lafayette. And forecasters say Alexandria's low is likely to be 17, not 13. That would still be 1 degree below the 1970 record for Jan. 7.
