.an arctic front will move through the area today, ushering a very cold airmass into the region. Precipitation will initially fall as light rain, then transition to a mix of freezing rain, ice pellets and snow early this morning as temperatures fall. The mix of wintry precipitation will spread south through early afternoon, while areas north of i-10 will see a changeover to mainly snow. Accumulations are not expected to be significant, but snow amounts of one half to one inch will be possible across interior southeast texas into central louisiana. Further south, snow amounts are expected to be less than one half inch. Ice accumulation is also expected to be minimal, not exceeding more than a few hundredths of an inch. Primary impacts for ice will be to bridges and elevated roadways. Precipitation will end from north to south this evening. In addition, strong northerly winds will produce dangerous wind chills. Wind chill values will dip into the teens by late afternoon. As temperatures continue to fall during the evening, wind chills will fall into the single digits across central and western louisiana, with lower teens elsewhere. These dangerously cold conditions will linger into wednesday morning.
