Central and southern Louisiana are in store for heavy rains over the next couple of days. An arctic cold front moved in yesterday plummeting temperatures and bringing a lot of moisture. Phil Grigsby with the National Weather Service says the strong winds will drop the wind chill to near freezing.
 


"It's going to feel a lot colder.  It's going to feel like it's actually in the 30s pretty much all afternoon.  It looks like the rain will continue as well." 
 
As the cold air continues making a push south, Grigsby says some people may see a wintry mix Thursday night into Friday morning. 
 
"At this time we're not expecting  any accumulation, because precipitation is going to be pretty light precipitation.  But temperatures are going to get down around freezing, especially north of I-10."
 
The weekend will be clear, but Grigsby says you still will need warm clothing if you’re heading out during this extended cold period. 
 
"It's going to get down to freezing Friday night as we clear out.  Saturday, a little bit warmer.  We'll get back up into the 50's on Saturday."
