Louisiana Winter Storm: Parish-by-parish of what you can expect

Wintry precipitation has ended in southeast Louisiana, but Monday night could still be dangerous for travel especially for Tangipahoa Parish toward Baton Rouge.

After rain, sleet and freezing rain Monday morning, precipitation has ended on Monday afternoon. Temperatures have risen to above freezing, and we'll stay above freezing for the next several hours in New Orleans & much of the Northshore. 

This will give roads a chance to dry out Monday afternoon. However - any water left on roads on Monday evening will freeze, which would mean spots of ice on roads Tuesday morning.

We're also expecting hard freeze conditions across our area Monday night through Tuesday morning. Protect exposed outdoor pipes, as well as plants, pets and people.
