Light, cold rain rains will continue for the rest of the night with some wintry precipitation mixed in at times, especially for northern parishes.
Mainly just a cold rain across the area tonight with a few sleet pellets/snow flurries mixing in for northern parishes of Acadiana (along and north of Highway 190).
However, it will be too warm at the surface as temperatures remain above freezing to support any sticking or accumulation.
The atmospheric column does not support significant snowfall across our region, but that is a different story for our friends to our north.
In fact, WINTER STORM WARNINGS are in effect for northern parts of the state where 2-4" of snow is forecasted to fall!
This WARNING has now also been extended into Cen. LA this afternoon.
Acadiana is NOT included in this warning.
Some lingering leftover shower activity will be possible by commute time on Monday, but the rain should be starting to wrap up.
We remain cold and breezy throughout the day on Monday as highs only top out in the mid-40s.
With a northerly wind in place (blowing in snow-cold air), there will certainly be a bite to the air as wind chills remain in the 30s all day long.
Plenty of clouds to go around on Monday as well, so we should not expect to see the sun..
Clouds should start to erode going into Tuesday morning as low temperatures fall to or below freezing.
Sunshine returns on Tuesday as chilly conditions stick with us as highs struggle to reach the lower 50s.
Rest of the week looks pretty good as slightly warmer temperatures return for late week.
Y'all have a great week and stay warm out there!
