Very Cloudy Skies over Baton Rouge

Very Cloudy Skies over Baton Rouge

The GFS has been consistently painting a picture of a wintry mix across the Southeast for Sunday and Monday and continues to show a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow across much of the northern half of Alabama.

While winter weather is certainly a possibility with moisture and cold air in place, it's increasingly looking like north MS will be the most favorable place to get a changeover to freezing rain.

There is only a slight chance of snow showers, with no accumulations, she said.

On Monday, morning lows will likely be in the teens and twenties and afternoon highs could be near or just below freezing. I-10 and southward to the coast should remain at least mostly cloudy for the rest of the day. Tonight, clouds stick with us and temperatures hover near freezing. Temperatures for Tuesday are expected to range from 20 degrees to 31. Saturday could see drizzle in the morning but as the day rolls on rain will increase and intensify. Rain will return New Year's Eve with highs in the mid 50s again. Sanchez said although precipitation is predicted to stop by Sunday afternoon, below-freezing temperatures will keep roadways, especially elevated areas like bridges and overpasses, slick on New Year's Eve. Northeasterly winds will remain in the 5 to 10 miles per hour range and that will make it feel even colder with wind chills in the 20s.
