Weekend Forecast is subject to change

Monday: A Gulf low could bring more precipitation on Monday and Monday night. We may have a mix of rain, sleet, and freezing rain. This could lead to ice issues Monday through Tuesday morning. Temperatures will quickly drop on Monday into the 20s and 30s by the afternoon. Make sure your home is winterized and know what you will do for you, your family, and pets just in case we have ice issues. Hard Freeze likely Monday night – Tuesday morning as temperatures drop into the lower 20s. Protect people, pets, plants, and pipes.

Tuesday: Hard Freeze likely in the teens and 20s Tuesday morning. There may be icy areas, too. Mardi Gras will be cold and mostly dry. Highs will only be in the 30s and 40s.

Wednesday & Thursday: Temperatures will briefly moderate into the 50s before yet another system moves in Thursday. We will have to monitor for some more ice issues.
