Posted at 5:48 PM, Jan 10, 2021

The National Weather Service has expanded its Winter Weather Advisory to include Evangeline Parish.

"Accumulations of snow and sleet are expected through early Monday morning... .A potent winter storm system will continue to impact the region early Monday. Precipitation across most of the area is expected to remain predominantly cold rain, but across interior southeast Texas and Central Louisiana, snow and/or sleet is expected to mix with the rain, and eventually become the dominant weather type in some locations. As such, some accumulation of sleet and/or snow is forecast, with 1 to 3 inches expected and higher amounts possible," an advisory from the NWS says.

The parishes included in the advisory include Beauregard, Allen and Evangeline, as well as the Texas counties of Hardin, Southern Jasper and Southern Newton.

The advisory remains in effect until 8 a.m. Monday; the NWS says "plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute."

In Louisiana, call 511 for road information.
