NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The well advertised winter storm moves in to the region with clouds picking up Sunday afternoon keeping high temperatures in the 40s. The very dry atmosphere moistened up through the day with rain building from west to east. A winter storm warning covers much of north Louisiana and Mississippi. Along the Louisiana border it is possible that the cold collides with moisture enough to get a few ice pellets, but overall we expect a cold rain that picks up overnight through the day on Monday for Southeast Louisiana and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Rain should taper off late Monday, but clouds will stick around and more cold air moves in behind the system. Highs on Monday will be very cold once again with temperatures in the 40s most of the day.
Tuesday looks a bit better with some sunshine returning, but with clear skies by later in the day we will see another cold morning on Wednesday with many areas reaching the freezing mark.
