The National Weather Service says there's a slight chance we could see frozen precipitation, maybe even snow, for areas of southeast Louisiana later this week.
Forecaster Danielle Manning says a cold front with precipitation will cross the state on Thursday and if that precipitation sticks around when temperatures drop, we could see a wintry mix.
"With those cold temperatures, we could be looking at a change over to snow or sleet, depending on the location," Manning said.
Manning says the chances we'll see snow or frozen precipitation is not high: only 20 to 30 percent. And if snow happens, it will likely be in areas north of I-12. But she says it's been a colder than normal winter in south Louisiana, so to have a slight chance of snow in the forecast is not a big surprise.
"With that cold air coming in and being reinforced, we do end up slightly better chance of snow than normal," she said.
