Chance for frozen precipitation and freezing temperatures for Acadiana

Cold temperatures and rainy weather will stick around the Houston area over the next couple days, making way for a possible appearance of sleet or snow, according to the National Weather Service.

Late Thursday night into Friday morning another cold front will swing down into Acadiana pushing down even colder air into the region. South of I-10 may still have rain around that could become a wintry mix. This means rain will begin to mix with snow and this could cause traveling to become more hard. Atlanta and Athens could see some accumulation that's expected to melt as the precipitation ends.

By the afternoon, all of the rain will be gone and we will still have mostly cloudy skies.

The main areas to watch from a Natchez - Hazlehurst - Newton line and point southward - grassy areas could pick up an inch or two of wet snow and sleet. Then, we'll slowly see the clouds move out through the day. Highs in the upper 50s to the lower 60s. Ground temperatures will be warm, air temperatures will remain a bit above freezing for most of the event, and rain could remain mixed in with the snow. However, temperatures will go back below freezing rather quickly tomorrow night, and any lingering water on roads could freeze. Sunshine will return for the day on Sunday. It will be great to get outside and enjoy the weather after all the rain we had!

Another cold front is approaching, but this one will be much weaker. Rain showers likely overnight.

He says high temperatures will only be in the mid 40s, but it will feel like the 30s with the wind chill. At the same time we will still have scattered showers. Soil temperatures are around 50 degrees, and that will greatly limit the accumulation potential. It will be a welcoming sight after all of the rain, and cloudiness we have had recently.
