Overnight, skies will become mostly clear to clear with light winds out of the north. Due to temperatures falling to and below freezing in some areas, we issued a freeze warning for Rapides and Avoyelles Parish. Good night all and stay warm!🥶

Temperatures will warm up today and tomorrow ahead of a cold front which is expected to push through the region late tomorrow night. Perfect day today with highs in the low 70s, sunny skies, and a light southeast wind.

Whoa! Early morning forecast lows on Nov 13th could set the daily record at many locations and get within 7 degrees from breaking all time record lows for the month of November. Last time the lows were under 25 was back in January of 2018. #txwx  #lawx  #notready  #cold

Timing for tonight's cold frontal passage and associated precipitation can be reasonably visualized with a look at model radar reflectivity from one of our local weather models. Most of tonight's rainfall will occur after midnight.

A look at temperatures at sunrise show what we anticipated... It's cold out ❄️! Readings spanning the 20s across the region will break the record lows in some locations. Needless to say, you'll want to bundle up before you head out this morning! #txwx  #lawx

Rain chances increase across the area as an upper level low moves east out of Mexico into South Texas. The upper low will merge with a Midwest upper trough and weaken. Rains will generally be light to moderate producing total rainfall less than 1/2 inch.

15 years ago today, the Space Shuttle Columbia broke up while reentering Earth's atmosphere. In response to the disaster, radars helped track the debris and forecasters provided weather support to teams working to find and recover the shuttle's wreckage.
