Temperatures across Louisiana are expected to drop to around freezing overnight resulting in frost and a light freeze.  State Climatologist Barry Keim says areas north of the I-10/I-12 corridor will have a light freeze Tuesday morning.  

Keim says you will want to protect your pets and plants from cold.
"This is not a 'pipes' kind of a freeze.  It's not going to be that hard and it's probably not going to last that long.  But you definitely want to take care of your pets and plants."

He says areas north of the corridor will drop to at or slightly below freezing overnight.  South central and southeast Louisiana is expected to remain above freezing tonight, but wind chill values are expected to drop below freezing in some areas.  Keim doesn't expect this weather event to last very long.

"Wednesday night a warm front is going to come through.  We're gong to get some rain and we're not going to be in serious warm temperatures like we were last week and during Christmas."

He says a warm front passing through the state Wednesday night will cause warmer temperatures to settle across the state, but not as warm as temperatures on Christmas.  Keim says he's quite sure more freezes are on their way for the Bayou State.

"It's been a pretty mild winter, up to this point.  But it's not going to stay like this.  We're going to see some cooler air as we get deeper into the winter season."
