...UNSEASONABLY CHILLY CONDITIONS EXPECTED WEDNESDAY MORNING...

THE COLD FRONT THAT MOVED THROUGH THE AREA OVERNIGHT IS BRINGING
MUCH COLDER AND DRIER AIR TO SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI AND SOUTHEAST
LOUISIANA TODAY AND WEDNESDAY. THE COMBINATION OF CLEAR
SKIES...DRY AIR AND LIGHT WINDS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO DIVE
INTO THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 30S FOR A FEW HOURS EARLY WEDNESDAY
MORNING ACROSS MUCH OF THE AREA. THE EXCEPTIONS WOULD BE AREAS ON
THE SOUTH SHORE OF LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN AND THE LOWER PORTIONS OF
THE COASTAL LOUISIANA PARISHES.

THESE TEMPERATURES WILL CHALLENGE RECORD LOWS FOR WEDNESDAY IN
MANY LOCATIONS. MUCH OF THE AREA IS ALREADY PAST THE DATE OF
THEIR LATEST FREEZING TEMPERATURES ON RECORD. SOME PROTECTED
LOCATIONS COULD SEE SOME LIGHT FROST WEDNESDAY MORNING. VERY
TENDER VEGETATION MAY NEED SOME PROTECTION FROM THE COLD
TEMPERATURES. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM WELL INTO THE 40S BY MID
MORNING ON WEDNESDAY WITH A MODERATING TREND IN TEMPERATURES TO
CONTINUE THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.
